Literary scholars have long speculated about the nature of rhyme’s cognitive and aesthetic effects. However, laying an empirical foundation for these speculations is a fairly recent endeavor and there remain considerable evidential gaps. The research project aims to broaden this empirical foundation, using methods from experimental psychology and psycholinguistics to address fundamental questions about rhyme that have gone unnoticed in prior research.
