Abstract

The end of the word CONTRAVENE rhymes with the end of "ONE HUNDRED AND SEVENTEEN" (117). The alphabetical total (a=1, b=2 etc) of CONTRAVENE is 117. That is the Numerical Rhymes game! I start off with numbers ending in "1". The "seventies" ...37, 47, 57, etc. were the least friendly, producing no well-known words. The relevant words are given in upper case.
