A half-rhyme or slant-rhyme, sometimes called near-rhyme or lazy rhyme, are rhymes created out of words with similar but not identical sounds. In most instances, either the vowel segments are different while the consonants are identical, or vice versa. This type of rhyme is also called approximate rhyme, inexact rhyme, off rhyme, analyzed rhyme, or suspended rhyme.
