A near rhyme (also called slant rhyme or partial rhyme) is a rhyme scheme in which the words in question don't completely rhyme, but parts of them do, like in a syllable or two (as in "gullible" and "eligible"), or the words may sounds similar, but not exactly the same (such as "soul" and "all").

Near rhyme, also known as slant rhyme or imperfect rhyme, occurs when two words have a similar, but not identical, sound. It involves the repetition of vowel or consonant sounds either at the end or in the middle of words. Near rhyme can create a subtle or harmonious effect in poetry or song lyrics.

An almost rhyme is called an assonance. The words will usually have the same amount of syllables and the main sound is the same - such as "civic" vs. "rhythmic", or "Narnia" and "balmier" (thank you, C.S.Lewis!)
