Synonyms are words that mean the same thing, or almost the same thing, in some context. For example, "machine" and "engine" or "boat" and "ship" -- in some contexts, those words are almost interchangeable.
The other day I noticed that the word PANACHE is almost exactly a combination of the synonyms PAIN and ACHE, with one letter I dropped. (Panache is what you have if you are stylish and confident. It's like elegance, but with more oomph.)
So, I wrote a program to go and bang synonyms together and see if
they're one letter away from other words. Imagine my delight when
there were a few, but not too many, of these.
Here's a selection of the ones I liked best.
See if you can figure them out!
