    Outside of subject and pedicate.

    It seems to me structured English follows the subject and predicate within the sentence. Any words outside the subject or the predicate are edited differently? Each sentence seems to have a flow or chain linked to each word, within the sentence? If that is the case then, why is there synonyms to use if the word in the sentence is not affiliated with the subject or the predicate?

    Paul, every word in the sentence is either part of the subject, or part of the predicate.

    Synonyms have absolutely nothing to do with either the predicate or the subject. A synonym is another word that has a similar meaning to one word in the sentence. It makes no difference what role the word plays. However, it's only a alternate choice for that one word, it won't be a synonym for any other words in the sentence.
