You have to be careful when using a thesaurus for synonyms and
antonyms. The results will provide exact matches and a selection of
near matches which can be used depending on context.
Some will give the completely wrong meaning for a particular context.
e.g. pupil can be a scholar or a part of an eye.
For examples, see <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Synonym>
This can produce odd-sounding results, especially if translating to a
foreign language using a foreign dictionary with vocabulary that you
are less familiar with, causing a native speaker to burst out
