Silly English Language

Why don't these words rhyme??

monkey and donkey

teen and been

laughter and slaughter

sword and word

pint and mint

water and later

howling and bowling

comb and tomb

gone, done, and bone

blew and sew

prove and love

sword and word

hour and four

Silly English language and all its nuances!!

I want to add to this list, so if you know or discover any let me know! :)

Edit March 4, 2017:

I just found out these are called "eye rhymes" because they LOOK like they should rhyme but don't due to different origins.
