I included a few vowel sounds which rhyme with each other in different English-speaking accents, because in other dialects the same words don't necessarily rhyme. For the record, I pronounce "scone" as rhyming with "con", and out of the list of provided words I pronounce "gone", "dawn", and "corn" as a rhyming triplet. (I also pronounce "pwn" as rhyming with "soon", based on long-standing agreement within my circle of friends that the "w" represents the Welsh vowel sound as in "cwm" and "crwth".)
