Similarly to any language, there are many synonyms and near synonyms in Chinese. Synonyms are words that are same in meaning. Near synonyms are words that are close or similar in meaning but not the same meaning. Synonym and near synonym are different concepts. It is very important to get a clear understanding of this basic concept. Even if the two words are synonyms, in some sentences they are not interchangeable. There are many Chinese synonyms and near synonyms that, when translated into English, there are not much differences, but when they are used in Chinese sentences, the differences are obvious, and vice versa. Some Chinese synonyms and near synonyms are interchangeable while some are not. When they are not interchangeable, they are either not properly used according to codes of Chinese language or different in meaning from the original sentence. If you can master the most important and often misused Chinese synonym and near synonym you will be ahead of most Chinese learners.
