Simple but hard: spelling two crucial words

By Monday, November 18, 2013 , , 0

As I read examination papers from the November session,  I see, that as always, students seem perennially challenged by  spelling two important literary terms: RHYTHM and RHYME.  I was curious to see if anyone on the web had come up with some mnemonic (memory) devices for these two troublemakers.  And I found one for rhythm: “Rhythm makes your two hips move.”  No question that’s it’s not dynamite, but it would probably work.  For rhyme, I didn’t locate one, and maybe someone else has one.  Maybe “Rhyme helps your mind entwine” since rhyme does actually provide entwining in a poem….and it does itself rhyme.  Happy to have any of you come up with a better, but at the least you need to do something about the problem if you still can’t write them correctly.
