  • A synonym is a word or phrase that means exactly or nearly the same as another word or phrase in the same language. Words that are synonyms are said to be synonymous, and the state of being a synonym is called synonymy.
  • In the figurative sense, two words are sometimes said to be synonymous if they have the same connotation:
  • ...a widespread impression that ... Hollywood was synonymous with immorality...
  • Metonymy can sometimes be a form of synonymy, as when, for example, the White House is used as a synonym of the administration in referring to the U.S. executive branch under a specific president.
