A Synonym is a word which have the same or we can say the similar meaning as another word. Synonyms are the part of speech which  can be verb, preposition, noun, adverb  and adjective etc so that the words can  belong to the same part of speech.


  • Verb:  buy & purchase
  • Adjective:  big & large
  • Adverb:  quickly & speedily
  • Preposition:  on  & upon

For example:

  • The words big and large are synonyms.
  • Buy and Purchase are also synonyms – although we likely to use “buy” in a more informal context, and “purchase” in a more formal context.

Synonyms are frequently used in different collocations, too.

For example, we can explain either a person or an idea as Brilliant, but only a person can be Smart.
