Homonyms, antonyms, and synonyms

Yury Abdukarimov
homonyms - words that sound alike but have different meanings -- bear and bare (homophones are homonyms - same spelling and sound, different meaning)
antonyms - words with opposite meaning -- fast and slow
synonyms -- words that have the same meaning -- naked and bare

Yevgeny, homonym for heal is heel. Hill is pronounced a bit different - but it is close
Yury Abdukarimov
I think runaway is sort of an antonym, but I don't really think there is an antonym for chase.
haunt is not a synonym (I suppose if you chase someone who does not want you to chase after them then you could haunt them... it is a stretch) - how about follow
Yury Abdukarimov
To repeat - next word -- FLOWER

Not everything has an antonym, homonym and/or synonym.
Yulia Salnikova
homonym is "flour", synonym is "blossom" but I don't think there is an anthonym.

next one: BUY

next one: be )
Yury Abdukarimov
homonym - bee, synonym - exist, antonym - don't think there is one

next word: plane
Yulia Salnikova
homonym is "plain", synonym is "aircraft" but there is no anthonym, I think.

next word: ONE
Yury Abdukarimov
homonym-Won, synonym - single, antonym- this is a stretch but mathematically I can argue that -1 is the opposite of 1. There really doesn't seem to be an antonym.

next word: Plum
