Synograms (Posted on 2005-08-17) Difficulty: 4 of 5
A synogram is a pair of words which are synonyms with the added rule that they are also anagrams (plus or minus one letter.)

For instance, bush and shrub are synonyms with only the letter R added to bush to make it an anagram of shrub. Another synogram pair is ludicrous and ridiculous.

What other synograms can you find?

Hi, Sam.

You're right about most of those, except Bio and Obit (not orbit). They're both life stories.

Yen and Envy, Tic and Itch, Nix and Jinx were stretches. 

Law and the sense of weal as "public welfare and civic order" - another stretch.

Counterindication and Countervindication are "crossword puzzle words." They're another stretch.

The last one was supposed to be Halfheartednesses (plural) and falseheartedness -- now those two really don't work.

I'll try to come up with some better long ones, like  maybe...

Unenterable and Unpenetrable, or Unenterable and Unrentable.
