For example, the words stones and rocks are synonyms.
Synonyms can be nouns, verbs, adverbs or adjectives, as long as both are the same part of speech.
- chair and seat (nouns)
- go and leave (verbs)
- quickly and rapidly (adverbs)
- long and extended (adjectives)
Synonyms need not be single words, as in war and armed conflict.
Here are more synonyms:
tremendous - remarkable
cat - feline
baby - infant
sick - ill
quickly - speedily
A word can have more than one synonym depending on which meaning you use for the word. For example:
- expired could have the synonym no longer fresh, if you mean milk that"s past its sale date.
- expired could have the synonym dead, if you mean no longer alive.
