I've heard some people pronouce orange /?ar@ndZ/ rhyming it with grunge /gr@ndZ/. In casual speech, I pronounce it /?arntS/.

Hey!

Out of this contrived conceit shalt thou leave me!


What other name could change to another this naturally?

Uncontrived coincidence? (pluralism?)

Hey music and pennyless, or pennyless music, or musical pennyless; you two can rhyme or-inge because you two yankees speak with a funny accent. Down south we speak proper. Orange rhymes with torange which is the proper name for an orange that is a tangerine.
