    Difference Between Antonyms And Synonyms

  • 1 decade ago

    Synonyms are two or more words that have the same meaning, almost like what you could find is a thesaurus. An antonym is a word that means the opposite definition of the word you have. Example: happy and joyful are synonyms because they have practically the same meaning and end and begin are antonyms because they mean the opposite thing.

    Synonyms are different words with almost identical or similar meanings, e.g. 'buy' and 'purchase'. Antonyms are words which have opposite meanings, e.g. 'wet' and 'dry'. Hope this helps!
