One-word substitutions List

Words that replace a group of words or a full-sentence effectively without creating any kind of ambiguity in the meaning of the sentences are called one-word substitutes. The main purpose of using one-word substitutes is to express the idea precisely and accurately.

For example

1. Today he has become an icon of simplicity, uncompromising quality, and fairness, apart from being a philanthropist.

2. He became a pioneer of India's software industry and started the Information technology wave.

What is the meaning of a philanthropist? A philanthropist is one who devotes his service or wealth for the love of mankind.

Who is a pioneer? Pioneer is a person who is the first to study and develop a particular area of knowledge, culture, etc.

You have observed that the meaning of a group of words is substituted with a word as in sentences (1) and (2).
