Rhymes






1. If an Old English word (e.g. bebod "commandment") has prefixes, suffixes, or initial consonants remove them all to go by the rhyme alone (-od).

2. Look for the rhyme (-od) in the list to find the corresponding Modern English rhyme (-ode) beside it.

3. Add the prefixes, suffixes, or initial consonants again, modernizing them if need ( bebode).
