Synonyms are different words with identical or very similar meanings. They can be any part of speech whether nouns, adjectives, adverbs or prepositions.

For example, heap and pile are synonyms. Purists say no two words can have the exact same meaning. For general purposes, who can tell the difference for example between a car and auto? To a point, synonyms are usually nuanced variation with slightly different meaning depending on the context.

Synonyms are used to spice up text and can increase your vocabulary. Who wants to use the same word over and over again? When you learn a new vocabulary word, find synonyms to expand your knowledge.

The English language is rich in synonyms. A thesaurus is very helpful to seek out another word with a similar meaning.
