Students can use Ryme Zone to help write poetry and song lyrics. To use RhymeZone, type a word into the search box, select a function in the dropdown list next to the box, and then hit "Go get it!" to view the results. Here are the different functions that you can select from that dropdown list: Rhymes: (words that rhyme with the word you typed in); Synonyms (words that are the same or similar in meaning to the word you typed in). Also included are Anonyms, Definitions and Homophones.

then you can discuss how else the word

"The like ... " might continue

e.g "the like do you: so shall we pass" and you can locate them in their context in the play if the meaning seems elusive!
