- Hmmm... talking of Chinese poetry, does anyone know if there's such a thing as "tone rhyme" in tone (static or contour) languages? So, for instance, instead of rhyming lines by having them end in the same sequence of consonants and/or vowels, they would end in the same sequence of tones? -Stephen (Steg) "The future is all around us, waiting in moments of transition to be born in moments of revelation.
