Abstract

Among other lexical devices, synonyms possess a remarkably big potential as expressive means of rhythmic prose. With the help of synonyms one and the same notion may be expressed in two or more ways. In the article, we tried to show that in the research material in both Georgian and English there is almost complete coincidence in terms of meaning and function of synonyms as a rhythm forming device. The target readers of the article will be linguists and the researchers who study rhythm of prose.
