Can you say "to have right individuality" in the sense of "to have complete individuality"? Thanks for your answers
right and complete are not synonymous word. so we cannot use right instead of complete.
I found an article in a dictionary which says that right and complete can be synonymous. But I don't know wheter they are synonymous in this sentence - maybe a native speaker can tell us.
right can be a noun/adjective/verb/adverb
complete can be an adjective/verb
now sunshine you tell me please that what did you see in the dictionary?
when is it synonymous? as adjective or verb?
I'm talking about the adjective as it is mentioned in the example above.
See Complete as adjective with two meanings:
with all the parts:

WHERE CAN YOU SEE THEM SYNONYMOUS?
Do you speak German? Then I send you my dictionary article.
I do not CLAIM that it is synonymous, I just ASK if there is a native speaker who could tell me whether it could be synonymous in this case.
