Synonymous words  are those words that have an equivalent meaning.

The opposite of synonyms are antonyms, which are words that have opposite meanings. For example: alive/dead, night/day, poor/rich, big/small, cute/ugly.

types of synonyms

  • Partial Synonyms . They have a similar but not exact meaning, depending on the context. For example: man – gentleman.
  • Total Synonyms . Their meanings coincide, regardless of the context in which they are used. For example: mud – mud. 

For example, it can be equivalent to say I sat on that bench waiting for you  and I sat on that seat waiting for you . But it must be taken into account that the word bank  also refers to a financial entity, so if it is used in that sense it would not be a synonym of seat.
