Some Rules to follow for Synonyms Questions are:

  • Associative Words

For Example:

  • Let the root word be Happy – now we have to associate more words that branch out from Happy:
    • Gay
    • Merry
    • Joyful
    • Jovial
    • Jolly
    • Delighted
    • Gleeful ……………..etc.

Rule #2 – Associative Words

There exists a set of words that have the charge to associate itself with other words carrying a similar or closely related meaning. For these types of words few of the letters are same for all the associated words with the same meaning. For these words, a positive word will only associate with positive words and negatives will associate with negative ones.

For example:

  • Apple – Now you need to have words that you can associate with apple. As much as you think you will get a longer list. let’s say:
    • fruit, red, citrus, healthy, sour, sweet, brand, rotten, peeled, skewed, green, pie, flavor, chop, slice etc. This association helps you to get more words inside your head than you would normally do.
  • Dog – Let’s associate some words with dog:
    • breed, animal, faithful, domestic, pet,stray, shaggy, naughty, panting, chained, licked, bite, howl, bark, shout, sniff, paw, beware etc.

 

Rule #3 – Word Charge

These charges can be:

  • Positive – words that give positive connotation. Example – help, joy, love, support, pride, etc.
  • Negative – words that give a negative connotation. Example – anger, disappointment, loss, hatred, hostility, crime, etc.
  • Neutral – Words that do not any predominant connotation. Example – weird, writing, dog, ship, fables, etc.
