According to the Cambridge Dictionary - a synonym is a word identical and co-extensive in sense and usage with another. It is a word denoting the same thing (things) as another but suitable in a different context (as leap and slay compared to jump and kill) or containing different suggestion (as blind worm compared to low worm). In short, a synonym is a word equivalent to another in one or the other sense (as ship compared to vessel).

An antonym, on the other hand, is a word of contrary or contrasted meaning of another word (as bad to good, high to low, short to long). Thus it is an anti-synonym. It is charged with the opposite meaning.

Vocabulary is the storage of words in a reader’s brain. It plays a fundamental role in the learning of the language. It is the foundation on which a student's mastery of the language is based.

The present dictionary should suffice to lay the needed foundation of one's vocabulary. Having grasped the knowledge and meaning of the basic words, you should practice their use in your day-to-day needs of your writing and conversation.

By developing an open mind for new words, by reading through good books and conversing with good talkers, you can certainly obtain a good mastery of words.
