In his constantly fascinating book "Finishing the Hat," the great -- and highly opinionated -- lyricist Stephen Sondheim includes a short chapter titled "Rhyme and Its Reasons." By "rhyme," Sondheim means what we call "true rhyme" or "perfect rhyme" -- "two words or phrases whose final accented syllables sound alike except for the consonant sounds which precede them" -- rather than "identity," in which the final accented syllables are identical (Romania/ mania), or near,false/slant/imperfect rhymes, which share the same vowel sound, but don't end the same way, or have the same consonants but different vowel sounds (buddy/body).
