Some examples of synonyms

Synonyms are such words with almost identical or similar meanings. In some cases, the synonymous words can be replaced each other without affecting the meaning. Nevertheless, some philologists claim that no synonyms have exactly the same meaning. The most of synonymous words are just similar in meaning but have different usage and translation.
