The link suggested silver... but I can think of pilfer! har!
Do you pronounce pilfer, pilver, or silver, silfer? They do not rhyme in my ideolect._________________________

That would be an egregious blunder from my part.

Actually, depending on your definition of rhyme, I'm finding it difficult to think of words that do rhyme with anything. Manything? Pennything?_________________________

its very interesting, if you are searching for pure words then NOTHING rhymes with "MONTH".but if purity is not the factor then these words "billionth, millionth, seventh, trillionth, zillionth"
do rhyme with "MONTH"..........

Indeed, newbee. Those pesky meters and schwas get in the way, purity-wise..

While we're on the subject of assonance and rhymes ... does anyone know if there is a word for an implied but unspoken rhyme - or one where a word is substituted for the word that rhymes because it is a swear word?

That's just one of those non-answers you get around here from time to time. Kinda like:
Q: What do you call someone who doesn't know his butt from a hole in the ground?
A: <Hated politician of your choice>
