SYNONYMS :



Synonyms are words with the same or nearly the same meaning. In most eases, a word does not mean exactly the same thing as another. For example, the words angry, annoyed, furious and indignant are synonyms. Annoyed is not as strong as angry. Furious is stronger than angry and annoyed. Annoyed means slightly angry. Furious means very angry. The word indignant is used to mean angry and surprised (at something which is wrong or not fair).

A good dictionary will help you to choose the right word to express what you exactly mean.
