Synonyms are words that are similar or have a related meaning to another word. 
They protect you to avoid repeating the same words over and over.

To begin with lets identify types and aims of those 3 dictionaries that are given as examples separately. Later on compare how the entries of those dictionaries differ from each other. 

First of them is Cambridge dictionary online, probably one of the best known online dictionaries out there. It has all the feature’s of a learner's dictionary. The language of the definitions are kept as simple as possible. Variations in spelling and pronunciation are avoided as much as possible too. To add more, no archaic words are usually included in these dictionaries, they mainly consist of the most frequently used words. To be more ac-curative it’s necessary to mention that it is monolingual dictionary, and explanatory too. Overall, having on mind that it is online dictionary, it combines various types of dictionaries itself. Let’s find out where this dictionary focuses on and what sort of information in delivers. As usual, in a first place it gives the definition of part of speech. The word we will analyse is library, which is noun. Just after this identification, the dictionary gives samples of British and american pronunciation, without showing the transcription, in a phonic way, so it allows to hear and understand different pronunciation in a more practical way than a regular transcription would do. As i stated earlier it is explanatory dictionary, it gives 2 definitions and 4 examples for the word library. So it mainly focuses on the aim, to give as clear as possible illustration what the actual meaning of the word is. It’s logically understandable that a noun cannot have antonyms, however, there are none of given synonyms either. 

The second dictionary that analyzes this particular word library, is called The Free dictionary Online. It is also monolingual dictionary. However, this dictionary gives information as a general dictionary. In these type of dictionaries the whole data in the dictionary represents a self contained and homogeneous system. The selection of entries is done from the works of the creative writers, or taken from literature of science sphere. The collected words may belong to heterogeneous speech groups of different periods. It‘s an american dictionary, so there is only one variant to hear the pronunciation of it. However, unlike the previous mentioned dictionary, it gives the word’s plural form, furthermore, it gives an entry of the word‘s origin, so it has etymology section. It gives 6 descriptions for our analyzing word. Despite all of that, it gives none of the information about synonyms

The third online dictionary i‘m going to review is called The Merriam Webster online dictionary. This particular dictionary definitely gives the most information about the word and its usage. The information provided is more detailed and relates to the history and the description of the item, so it‘s quite easy to identify this dictionary as an encyclopedic dictionary. It starts from the word‘s origin, however, the way it is spelled, shows a stroke, so it‘s clear for the foreigner English learners where the stroke takes a place in the pronunciation of this word. As well as Cambridge dictionary online, it allows to hear British and American versions of the word pronunciation, furthermore it gives a wider explanation between those two. As well as the The free dictionary online it pays attention to the word‘s plural. It also gives 4 definitions of the word, and also gives 2 specific points for foreigner learners and children. This dictionary pays a lot of attention to the pronunciation characteristic‘s and discusses the ways when a certain or the most common pronunciation of this word takes a place, the social groups among certain type of it, where they are being used and etc. Unlike the previous 2 dictionaries it gives 3 sentences containing this sample word, in order to make it clear with what kind of contexts this noun can be used practically. Finally it gives a full- scale entry about the noun‘s origin. The etymology section also reveals the first date library was mentioned publicly. Unlike the previous two dictionaries this one gives a synonym to the noun we are analyzing. To summarize, the whole entry of the noun ends giving the words with similar vowel- consonant sequence, similiar in a sense, that all of the given words rhyme with the analyzing noun.

Origins of slang. Slang as synonyms.  

Slang usually originates as the language of a subculture within a society. Occupational groups (like policemen, criminals, doctors or students) are prominent creators of jargon and slang. Other well-known examples include racial minorities (i.e., the Afro-Americans), teenagers, soldiers etc. Often, slang represents the attitudes and values of the members of a given group. It gives the group security of self-expression and a sense of superiority, since non-members are unable to understand what they are saying. Besides, slang can be used as a manifestation of a certain background: the speaker may deliberately choose to speak in slang in order to convey that kind of information. However, before a word or expression becomes slang, it must be widely adopted. If the subculture has enough contact with the mainstream culture, its slang may be shared by a wider population. The commonly used word cool, meaning ‘very nice, stylish’, first originated in the predominantly black Harlem district of New York City. Slang is generally not affixed to a geographic location, because it tends to spread lightly. It can move very fast and become commonplace quite suddenly, e.g., when a given word or expression is connected with a famous event. However, it gets out of date just as fast, or faster. With the introduction of new realities, new words come into action while older ones move out of general use.  

Development of slang synonyms.

  A slang expression may become accepted as standard speech, whether in its original denotation like bus (from omnibus), or in an altered meaning, often moderated to remove unacceptable, i.e., sexual connotations (like jazz). Some expressions, on the other hand, persist as slang for centuries, like beat it for ‘go away’, that has been used in England since the 16th century. The 20th century has prompted a burst of new slang, with its new technologies and the popularization of mass media and rapid travel. Television and novels have turned certain professional jargons into general slang, e.g., such criminal terms as grand for ‘thousand’ are now widely used. Changing social circumstances may induce changes in slang. Expressions related to drugs (like pot or marijuana) were virtually secret in the 1940s, but the ‘60s introduced them into the language of youth and they have been widely known since the ‘70s. Nowadays the drug-related lexicon has vastly increased, incorporating colloquial expressions for such drugs as MDMA (E, ecstasy, the love drug), amphetamine (amp, snap, blue boy) and others. Computer slang is also a very specific issue. With most of the contemporary youth lurking at the keyboard 24 hours a day, a whole new language has developed, and since computers and Internet are all about briefness, it is based on abbreviation. Such shortenings as BRB (‘be right back’), ILU (‘I love you’) and Y (‘why’) have replaced the normal words for good. Computer slang even has its own deviations, such as ‘leetspeak’, or 133t5p33k, which is based on numbers and deliberate mistypes graphically and on obscenity and rudeness purpose-wise. ‘Smiley-faces’, or emoticons, punctuation marks arranged to portray emotions (:-) ‘happy’, :-( – ‘sad’ etc.) can also be considered one of the exponents of contemporary technological slang.

Conclusion  

All of the above is but a brief introduction into the phenomenon of slang. A full study would require many years, for the subject is so complex. Any language is an undividable entity, of which slang is a significant part. Slang is as complicated and beautiful in its linguistic intricacy as any other element of the language and should be treated as such. It is not without reason that many papers and dictionaries have been dedicated to slang and I strongly feel that there should be more. Understanding slang is vital for understanding culture in its full. Every scientist should be encouraged to understand that. The language the people speak is informative of the cultural level they enjoy, and nowadays people speak in slang, which is, I daresay, rather convenient. In the end I’d like to state that I personally dig (‘enjoy’) slang big-time (‘greatly’) and suggest everyone should do the same.
