    Words rhyme !

    Do you think two these words rhyme ?
    "boot" and "suit" ?
    I don't think they do, even when I looked up my dictionary for both, I have seen that they are different in pronunciation (the "oo" and "ui") unless my dictionary is wrong.
    Could you please tell me the difference in pronunciation the vowels between "boot" and "foot" and how to differentiate them ? I'm really amazing when knowing that they don't rhyme. And even when having known that, I still don't know how to read them differentially !
    Please help me !
    Thank you so much !

    Absolutely.

    "Foot" is a completely different sound and rhymes with "soot"

    For many people, 'suit' and 'boot' have the same sounds after the initial consonant. In my dialect they don't: /sju:t/ and /bu:t/
