RhymeBrain—Not Just for Poets

“I sing [write] from the heart... I sing [write] the words of a song and really feel them, from the top of my head to the tip of my toes... I sing [write] as though my life depends on it, and if I ever stop doing that then I'll stop living.”—Mario Lanza

RhymeBrain isn’t just for poets, it’s for all writers who want to make their writing sing. Use the alliteration aide to add another building block to your writing tool box and make your sentences, headlines, titles, or subtitles lalalalala. Add alliteration (repeating the same consonant sound at the beginning of several words) to your sentences. RhymeBrain figures out how to pronounce your word in the same way a human brain does. It uses combination of heuristics, machine learning and probabilistic algorithms.
