Do you know your synonyms, or words that mean the same thing?


Igor Stevanovic/123RF

If someone asked you how you're feeling, would you say you're happy, cheerful, jolly or cheery?

Those words are all synonyms — words that mean exactly or nearly the same thing.

Another example would be to say "shut the door" instead of "close the door," since shut is a synonym of close.
