Synonyms are words of the same grammatical class (nouns, verbs, adjectives, etc.) that have similar meaning. No word means exactly the same as any other word and, therefore, there are no exact synonyms in English.
Certain words may convey the same general notion, e.g. slay, kill, murder, execute and slaughter. Though they are used in different senses and in different contexts, they may be treated as synonyms. Read the examples given below.
A list of synonyms is given below. No such list, of course, can be comprehensive. Students may refer to Rogerts Thesaurus for a further list of synonyms.
abbreviate abridge, shorten
