  Synonym Rings and Authority Files - Boxes and Arrows: The design behind the design
Synonym rings and authority files are simple tools that can bridge the gap between natural language and complex controlled vocabularies (taxonomies and thesauri) quite nicely.
The synonym ring goes into effect only when there is a matching synonym for the term entered into the search box by the user.
Synonym rings and authority files are simple, common-sense ways to help users connect the various semantic concepts that are inherently intertwined with the term they choose.

  Synonym Dictionary - Look Up and finder   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Synonyms are "objective" if they unambiguously refer to the same taxon; this is the case if they refer to the same description or the same type specimen.
Otherwise the synonyms are "subjective", meaning that there is room for debate: one researcher might consider the two names to refer to the same taxon, another might disagree.
Objective synonyms are common at the level of genera, because two researchers may independently arrive at the conclusion that a species is sufficiently different from others in its genus that it needs to be given its own genus.

  Synonym - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Synonyms (in ancient Greek syn 'συν' = plus and onoma 'όνομα' = name) are different words with similar or identical meanings and are interchangeable.
Synonyms can be nouns, adverbs or adjectives, as long as both members of the pair are the same part of speech.
Note that the synonyms are defined with respect to certain senses of words; for instance, pupil as the "aperture in the iris of the eye" is not synonymous with student.

 Synonym (botany) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In botanical nomenclature, the synonym of a botanical name is a name that also applies to this same taxon.
Note that in botany it is not required that a synonym has formal status ("be validly published"): a listing of synonyms often contains names that for some reason did not make it as a formal name (unpublished or manuscript names).
The treatment of synonyms in botanical nomenclature is quite different, in at least detail and terminology, from zoological nomenclature, where the correct name is included among synonyms, although as first among equals it is the senior synonym.

 Synonym - Simple English Wikipedia
A synonym is a word that has the same (or almost the same) meaning as another word.
Synonyms can be nouns, verbs, adverbs or adjectives, but both words must be of the same part of speech.
That means, only a noun can be a synonym of another noun, only a verb can be a synonym of another verb, and so on.

Synonyms can be nouns, adverbs or adjectives, as long as both members of the pair are the same part of speech.

Synonyms permit applications to function without modification regardless of which user owns the table or view and regardless of which database holds the table or view.
Oracle uses a public synonym only when resolving references to an object if the object is not prefaced by a schema and the object is not followed by a database link.
If you create a public synonym and it subsequently has dependent tables or dependent valid user-defined object types, then you cannot subsequently create another database object of the same name as the synonym in the same schema as the dependent objects.

An example of synonyms, which can never occur singly because each synonym must refer to another word, are the words cat and feline (as a noun).
However, different words similar in meaning usually differ for a reason, feline is more formal than cat; long and extended are only synonyms in one usage and not in others, such as a long arm and an extended arm.

 GO Synonym Guide   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Despite the name, GO synonyms are not always 'synonymous' in the strictest sense of the word, as they do not always mean exactly the same as the term they are attached to.
Instead, a GO synonym may be broader or narrower than the term string; it may be a related phrase; it may be alternative wording, spelling or use a different system of nomenclature; or it may be a true synonym.
In some cases, broader and narrower synonyms are created in the place of new parent or child terms because some synonym strings may not be valid GO terms but may still be useful for search purposes.
