13.‘Synonyms are different words with almost identical or similar meanings.’

14.There are actually four types of antonyms:
Gradable antonyms are opposites at either end of the spectrum, as in slow and fast.
Complementary antonyms are absolute opposites, like mortal and immortal.
Relational antonyms are opposites where one word describes a relationship between two objects, and the other word describes the same relationship when the two objects are reversed.    For example, parent and child, teacher and student, or buy and sell.
Auto-antonyms are the same two words that mean the opposite.    For example, fast (moving quickly) and fast (stuck in place).

15.Dictionary Vs Thesaurus
A dictionary is a book containing the individual words of a language (usually organized alphabetically). The purpose of the dictionary is to set forth the meanings, pronunciation and signification of those words.
The thesaurus, on the other hand, is a specific dictionary that presents synonyms (words that have similar meaning) for every word listed.
The purpose of the thesaurus is to help the writer to find more suitable words and avoid the repetition of terms.
