give me a 4 syllable word that ends with an 'ik' rhyme (or half rhyme)
but I should have added that it would be preferable with the stress on the second syllable
thanks though theo
You've got no chance unless you deliberately pronouce it that way, I think.
hence my dilemma
I thought the collective DiS might come up with something
the nearest I've got so far is the half-rhyme perjorative
e.g. Democracy, but I can't think of any -ic ending words that don't stress the penultimate syllable, which will make getting the stress elsewhere (even using two words of two, or 1 & 3) hard.
I think I'll have to stick with the half-rhyme 'pejorative'
verb: used in reference to something that imparts similar joy on its viewer as would be experienced if they were confronted by a t-rex.
but they all have their stresses on the 3rd syllable
I need a second syllable stress
