Say prefer, but preferable,
Comfortable and vegetable.

Debt and dumb both leave it out.

In daughter leave the gh out.

Root can never rhyme with soot.

With an accent like possess.

Just as if it rhymed with boards.

Tie a ribbon with a bow.

Which again must rhyme with how.
In perfect English make a start.
Learn this little rhyme by heart.
