I see others have managed to inform and confuse ; ) so I will just say that you have managed to wake us all up and give a really good word post. I bow to you. Hats Off for Aji!
Stay with us, Aji and post often!
Aloha and blessings from your High Priestess

The wind was rough and cold and blough;
She kept her hands inside her mough.
It chilled her through, her nose turned blough,
And still the squall the faster flough.
And yet although there was no snough,
The weather was a cruel fough.
It made her cough (please do not scough),
She coughed until her hat blough ough.
--I've seen this credited to Benet Cerf.

ough can also rhyme with up. So far as I know the word is unique. I have fooled a bunch of English teachers with it when the discussion of -ough came up._________________________

Hiccough is just a bogus spelling attempting to make some connection with cough.
