    Re: their meaning/meanings

    2 would be correct with the addition of the article - "They have the same meaning".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: their meaning/meanings

    Hello again,
    Thanks for answering. I added an article "the" for number 1 and 2:

    1. They have the same meanings.
    2. They have the same meaning.
    3. Their meanings are the same.
    4. Their meaning is the same.
    5. They have the same meaning.

    Would you please be kind enough to give your final answer once again?
    Are they all same? If they are all same then what's the difference among them?

    Thank you

    Re: their meaning/meanings

    2 and 5 are identical.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    1. They have the same meanings.
    2. They have the same meaning.
    3. Their meanings are the same.

    Those are equivalent.

    Re: their meaning/meanings

    Thanks for answering. So if I remove article "the", they all will be incorrect. Right?
    I mean:

    1. They have same meanings.
    2. They have same meaning.
    3. Their meanings are same.
    4. Their meaning is same.
