    Re: rhyme

    Yes..the "na" would be considered to be approximate rhyme.

    Re: rhyme

    Thanks
    I am sure that "Soha" rhymes with "Noha", but does "Mona" rhyme with them?

    No it doesn't. The last stressed syllable and following syllables must be the same for a rhyme.
    Mona rhymes with kona, Pomona
    In my accent, Mona also rhymes with kroner, boner, loner, and "disown 'er".
