Making This List[edit]

This was generated on a Debian system using the american-english-insane dictionary using the following command:

grep -e '[^A-Z].*ou\?r[mn]ing$' /usr/share/dict/american-english-insane

Plus a few from this command, filtered to only those that rhyme.

grep -i -E "[^A-Z].*ar[mn]ing$" /usr/share/dict/american-english-insane
