  • A synonym is a word that has the same meaning as another word.
  • Synonyms are different words with almost identical or similar meanings.
  • Synonyms can be any part of speech (e.g., nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs or prepositions), as long as both members of the pair are the same part of speech.
  • Opposites are words that lie in an inherently incompatible binary relationship as in the opposite pairs. For example, father: mother, husband: wife, black; white, etc. The notion of incompatibility here refers to fact that one word in an opposite pair entails that it is not the other pair member.        

 

 

 

 

  •     Words that are synonyms are said to be synonymous.
  •     The state of being a synonym is called synonymy.

For example, the words co/'and automobile are synonyms.

Similarly, if we talk about a long time or an extended time, long and extended become synonyms.

In the figurative sense, two words are often said to be synonymous if they have the same connotation.

  •     The relationship between opposites is known as opposition.
  •     The term antonym has also been commonly used as a term that is synonymous with opposite; however, the term also has other more restricted meanings.  

 

 

 

 

  •     Synonyms are defined with respect to certain senses of words. For example,
  •     Pupil as the 'aperture in the iris of the eye' is no synonymous with student.
  •     Similarly, he expired means the same as he died, yet my passport has expired cannot be replaced by my passport has died.
  •     According to some lexicographers, no synonyms have exactly the same meaning.
  •     Opposites are simultaneously different and similar in meaning.
  •     Typically, they differ in only one dimension of meaning, but are similar in most other respects.
