It is suggested that synonymy should be accounted for in terms of three different kinds of activation patterns associated with the semantic representations of various groups of lexical units regarded as synonyms. Synonymy is shown to be unique among other semantic relations in that in makes use of all three possible co-activation patterns: co-activation resulting from neural and conceptual overlap (Synonymy A), co-activation resulting from neural and conceptual closeness (i.e. contiguity . Synonymy B), and co-activation resulting from strong neural and conceptual links between separate regions (Synonymy C). The proposal shows that the cognitive approach to semantic relations based on the philosophy of embodied realism offers new insights and new solutions of the traditional problems of semantics.
