Do they rhyme in your accent?

MonkeyJumping Mon 04-Dec-17 15:42:04

Yes, they're Dan-yul and Sam-yul to me.

LaContessaDiPlump Mon 04-Dec-17 15:42:50

Dan-yul and Sam-u-el. Nope grin
Sort of a southern English/Welsh/international English accent here though, so ignore me!

Kenworthington Mon 04-Dec-17 15:43:31

Similar but they don’t really rhyme as such

grendel Mon 04-Dec-17 15:44:54

They very nearly rhyme.

It's sort of Dan-yul and Sam-yu-ul

MrsJayy Mon 04-Dec-17 15:45:16

Yes i would say Danual Samual and if the names get shortened it will be here comes Danny&Sammy very rhymey

Danny and Sammy don't rhyme but are quite similar.

Daniel and Samuel rhyme if you are French.

I say them as Dan-yul and Sammy-wul.

They nearly do.

Battleax Mon 04-Dec-17 16:30:42

Pretty much, yes.

Yes, Dan-yil, Sam-yil (that kind of vowel at the end that could pass as an I/E/U/whatever as it's not really pronounced if that makes any kind of sense).

They sounds vey rhymey to me too and Dan and Sam said it quick succession is just tying my tongue up. grin

YouCantArgueWithStupid Mon 04-Dec-17 16:39:03

They don't rhyme but they have assonance

Amber0685 Mon 04-Dec-17 16:39:06

No southern with a bit of Australian accent

Ontopofthesunset Mon 04-Dec-17 16:50:16

Not to me. They're Dan-yul and Sam-yu-ul (or Sam-yool). Samuel has another very short syllable but mainly Daniel has a short vowel and Samuel a long one.

A pedant wouldn't say rhyme, I guess, but yes, they sound similar enough that we all know what you mean.

ThroughThickAndThin01 Mon 04-Dec-17 17:08:57

Almost. Too close for brothers.

ferrier Mon 04-Dec-17 17:20:16

@ImogenHeat It's called schwa.

Sophronia Mon 04-Dec-17 17:22:21

Dan-yul and Sam-yul for me.

ineedamoreadultieradult Mon 04-Dec-17 17:29:01

I would say Dan-yul and Sam-you-ul
So no I don't think they would rhyme. Very similar though and I don't think they would work as brothers.

Lillylollylandy Mon 04-Dec-17 17:35:15


No they don’t rhyme.

beardymcbeardy Mon 04-Dec-17 17:36:48

yh pretty much in a scottish accent. dan-yil and sam-yil.

Sugarpiehoneyeye Mon 04-Dec-17 18:04:18

They don't rhyme, but they're very similar, however, Danny and Sam are cool names. 😄

Atticusss Mon 04-Dec-17 18:05:34

Yes. I worked on a setting where there were two brothers with those names. Alwaus Daniel and Samuel not Danny and Sam. It drove me INSANE. I couldn't figure out why the parents had done it. They were very close in age and looked nearly identical too.
