100 English Synonyms to Expand Your Vocabulary – Espresso English A synonym is a word with the same or a similar meaning as another word. For example, the words big and large are synonyms. Buy and purchase are also synonyms – although we tend to use “buy” in a more informal context, and “purchase” in a more formal context. Keep in mind that some synonyms in the list below might not be “perfect” synonyms – there may be slight differences in meaning and connotation.

Advanced Questions and concerns often arise among teachers when it comes to advanced students: just what can a high-level learner do? They have cleared the hurdle of fluency problems, as much of the language has become automatic. In other words, they don't pre-translate and then speak. They also don't get hung up on particular words, and instead can explain around unknown vocabulary. When listening or reading, they don't need to translate, and can often guess the meaning of a new word, phrase, or difficult sentence through context.
