A list of common synonyms

What are Synonyms?

Synonyms are words that have same or similar meaning as another word. Therefore, synonyms can be used interchangeably without affecting the meaning of the sentence where they are used.

Authors choose a synonym depending on the context, or tone, of their writing. Some words are preferred in the "formal" tone, or language, than their synonyms. Synonyms help you expand your vocabulary, which helps you understand the language better.
