You could try to send the post request of their form from a language 
like python and see what comes back, but i'm not sure they'd appreciate 
you using their site without passing through their form and injecting 
requests in their CGI. It's some sort of hacking...

To make an independent rhyming dictionnary program, I think you 
basically need to have a list of words written phonetically and with 
syllabes separation. After that, it's only a search function to find the 
matching pattern. The difficult part is to get the phonetic data.
