  • Jackson (ibid. 67) coins a term “loose synonymy” for a sense relation between
    words, mentioned in the last category (v) of Palmer‟s division of differences between synonyms. Loose synonyms have the same general reference and the words can substitute each other in a wide range of contexts yet not in all of them.
