Category for rhyming phrasesEdit

This might be a sub-category, but I am wondering if we have (or could have) a category for phrases which, besides repeating aspects, actually rhyme?

For example the pair of words brain drain having a rhyming sound, but bric-a-brac does not.

For the most part I assume this will be the case when the ends of words are duplicated as opposed to the beginnings.

Does anyone know what a good term for that would be? I would like to make a subcategory and organize the things in this list which are semi-homonymous. Etym (talk) 01:50, 3 February 2013 (UTC)
