Thread Name: worst rhyme ever
Subject: RE: worst rhyme ever
Rapaire: "new one" "Juan" was not actually a bad rhyme in Byron's time; the Anglicized spelling pronunciation was standard in his day. So also with "Quixote" & some other foreign names for which modern usage requires some approximation to the native pronunciation.
