Author’s Note: ‘Slant’ or ‘off-rhymes’ are word pairings which are used in rhyme. The words themselves do not rhyme, but are ‘almost’ rhymes or near misses. A slant rhyme can be used when no rhyming word is available to maintain the sound and feel of continuity in a poem which uses rhyme.
e.g. orange/arrange – card/laird – cabbage/radish
