    Cohort means a group of people, but it doesn't rhyme with con short toe.

    concerto is a word but is a musical composition.

    How are you going to use it in a sentence.

    Actually, concerto is "cun-chair-toe" or "con-chair-toe", depending on where you put the emphasis.

    I've heard people pronounce it "con-share-toe". Again, it's all a matter of where you put the emphasis, or where you slur.

    Reverse Dictionary... um, wow. What I would like to know is, who had the time to code that thing? Must be some kind of massive dictionary search engine. O_O
