Student or Learner
In my recent studies I have come across words such as synonym, onomatopoeia acronym and many more. I am trying to find if there is a collective name for these words?
laugh out loud!
Joking aside, Charlie B's observation points up the truth of what you are asking. When you try to find a higher-level abstract category for very dissimilar things, then the word becomes so abstract it is of little real assistance in conceptualizing meaning.
synonym, onomatopoeia, and acronym are categories. Other than "terms in English grammar" ...
