    the same ...

    Is the following part correct?

    What word has the same meaning as( or with?) A?

    What word has a( or the?) similar meaning as( or with?) A?

    I think A and B have a similar meaning.

    I think in meaning, A and B imply the same.

    The last two are OK, but I would say, "I think A and B imply the same thing" for the second.

    Re: the same ...

    * 'The same ... as'. (I'm sure you'll find many counterexamples on the Internet; so what A: So it's a common mistake.)

    Your third sentence is OK; your fourth is pleonastic.

    b
