    Synonym...

    Hello!,

    My question is if we can use syonyms in any sentence we would
    For example: "oddly enough, he hasn't mentioned it"
    curiously enough, funnily enough, interestingly (synonym)
    Can we use any of them in the same sentece above and if does change the meaning? Is synoyms for interchangeably?

    It depends on the synonym - which is why I have very mixed feelings about dictionaries of synonyms. I might use any of your adverbials, but which I'd use and which I wouldn't would depend on the context. I know this response isn't very helpful, but I fear a more apparently helpful response would be misleading - as Einstein said, "an explanation should be as simple as possible and no simpler"; read a lot, listen a lot, make lots of mistakes in your speaking and writing, and in time you will learn.
