Synonyms: Find Similar Words & Examples

Synonym is a noun. ['ˈsɪnəˌnɪm'] two words that can be interchanged in a context are said to be synonymous relative to that context.


The English language is replete with synonyms in large part because England was invaded by so many different language speakers. Romans, Vikings, and William the Conqueror all played a role to meld a simplified Germanic language with borrowed words from French, Latin and many others. In fact, loanwords are estimated to come from 350 different languages.
