We're not supposed to know that. The point of the analysis swap is that we should have minimal knowledge of the language and infer everything from the conversation.

Re: Rhymes in languages with/without consistent endings

Ending scheme? You mean some common inflectional endings? Well, English doesn't have a lot, yet it rhymes just fine. (Also, remember that rhymes are not necessarily universal in poetry!)
