What is the term for two words which refer to the same thing but with different connotations. e.g. Red (letter) vs. Scarlet (letter). I believe this falls into the category of a figure of speech or a form of expression.

I think you answered your own question.


Connotation is a subjective cultural and/or emotional coloration in addition to the explicit or denotative meaning of any specific word or phrase in a language, i.e. emotional association with a word.

U know, that all scarlet is red,
but not all red is scarlet.

Scarlet is one of the shades of red.
