    It makes rhyme..?

    I made a sentence 'It makes rhyme with other products such as iPad and ipod.

    I think the part 'It makes rhyme' is wrong.

    How can I make the sentence correct?




    add) Ipad, Ipod,Iphone have 'I' so I think the words match each other.

    How can I say?

    "It rhymes with other products such as iPad and ipot."
    Note: this is impossible. If something rhymes with iPad, then it doesn't rhyme with ipot.

    You can't make it correct, probably because "rhyme" isn't what you mean. What are you trying to say?

    I would guess that you're looking for a word that means something works with products such as the iPad and the iPod (not iPot). Perhaps it is compatible with ...?

    Either that, or 'the word fits the same pattern as words such as ...'? Basically we can't correct it because we don't know what you're trying to say.
