We mean do mean rime. As per The Literacy Dictionary (1995), page 222:
Rime: n. a vowel and any following consonants of a syllable.
To clarify, the -ig rime in "pig" and "fig" make the words rhyme. "Bite" and "light" rhyme, but they do not have the same rime.
I hope that clears up the usage in this lesson.
