I mean, you already have two words in English for it, why can't Hungarian have two words as well

If they are synonymous, the sentence doesn't make sense.

Isn't a mug or bögre bigger than a cup or csésze?

And even if they meant exactly the same, this is still a conceivable sentence - unless you're saying they people never utter tautologies.
