BROADER CONCEPT
SCOPE NOTE
  • Synonymy is the semantic relationship that exists between two (or more) words that have the same (or nearly the same) meaning and belong to the same part of speech, but are spelled differently. In other words, we can say that synonymy is the semantic equivalence between lexical items. The (pairs of) words that have this kind of semantic relationship are called synonyms, or are said to be synonymous.
