    Why would people invent a common word that's rhyme-less?

    That’s a slant-rhyme at best.

    Just like “door hinge.”

    I wonder if there's a conspiracy theory out there explaining that evil plot behind creating rhyme-less words, meant to drive poets out of their minds.

    Well, if there wasn't one, now there is.

    Because it's a word inherited from a different language...

    And rhyming is apparently NOT the main reason to have words...hard as that may seem...
