Synonyms and Antonyms


Synonyms are words that are similar or have a related meaning to another word in the same language. 

Note that a synonym may share an identical meaning with another word, but the two words are not necessarily interchangeable. For example, "blow up" and "explode" have the same meaning, but "blow up" is informal (used more in speech) and "explode" is more formal (used more in writing and careful speech).
