What are Synonyms?

Words with nearly the same meaning but used differently, are called Synonyms.

Example: Abstain and Refrain are two words that seem very nearly the same. But, we abstain from a thing and refrain from a habit or an action.

    The following sentences make it clear.
    (i) We should abstain from wine.
    (ii) We should refrain from drinking.
