    Abstract: 近似同義詞被定義為在廣義上字義相同的字,但在特定的上下文中,他們不是每次都可以替換。因為差異對於語言學習者實在非常細微,所以可能會造成學生字使用這些字時產生問題。本研究的目的是要第一先歸類廣泛被使用的高中英文課本中動詞的近似同義詞成四個類別:句法及搭配詞的變化、風格的變化、表達情緒的變化以及字義的變化。並進一步觀察這些近似同義詞如何在最被廣泛使用的高中英文教科書中呈現及被學生使用在大學入學考試的作文佳作中,並了解學生是否可以從這些同義詞的變化的到幫助。
    在此研究中,除了檢視最被廣泛使用的教科書本身外,其補充教材也一併審視。研究中的學生作文涵蓋了106至109年的兩種入學考試。藉由根據Edmonds (2002)的近似詞變化來分類近似詞組及對照這些字在學生作文佳作的使用,此研究發現近似詞組在課本中呈現的變化數量,不見得可以幫助或干擾學生對於近似詞在作文佳作中的使用。
    Near-synonyms are defined as words that share the same meaning in a broad level, but in certain context, they are not always interchangeable. Since the difference is so subtle to language learners, it may cause problems when students are using these words. The aim of the study is to first classify the verb near-synonyms presented in the vastly used series of English textbooks among senior high schools into four categories: syntactic and collocational variations, stylistic variations, expressive variations and denotational variations. And further look into how these near-synonyms were presented in the most-used textbooks in senior high schools in Taiwan and used in high-scoring essays of College Entrance Exams to see if students can benefit from the variations of these near-synonym pairs/groups.
    In the study, the most popular series of textbooks were examined and besides textbooks themselves, the supplements are also investigated in the study. Students’ high scoring essays are from year 106 to 109 for both college entrance exams. By first classifying the near-synonym pairs/groups according to Edmonds’ (2002) near-synonyms variations and comparing them with students’ uses of these words in their high-scoring esassys, the study found that the number of variations presented in the textbooks for near-synonym pairs/groups do not necessarily help or interfer with students’ use of those near-synonym words in their essays.
