    Synonyms are different words with identical or at least similar meanings. Words that are synonyms are said to be synonymous, and the state of being a synonym is called synonymy. The word comes from Ancient Greek σύν ("syn") "with" and ὄνομα ("onoma")

    "name."http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Synonym

    A synonym is a word that has a similar definition or meaning as another word. Usually they are words that can be used interchangeably. You can find synonyms in a thesaurus or at thesaurus.com.
