A synonym was a word that had the same or similar meaning as another word.
In 2151, Enterprise NX-01's phonetic processor had difficulty translating the word "pump" into the Axanar language. Hoshi Sato was having the processor look for an appropriate synonym. Jonathan Archer suggested that she simply talk to the Axanar without the universal translator. (ENT: "Fight or Flight")
In 2267, the USS Enterprise computer defined "Jack The Ripper" as an Earth synonym for Redjac. (TOS: "Wolf in the Fold")
