More synonyms needed

When translating from English to Spanish, there is often a far greater supply of Spanish words, but at present Duolingo does not accept enough of those synonyms when judging whether your answer is right or wrong. Please can you populate with more synonyms ? :)

I think will need to be a bit more specific. What words?, what synonyms?

I will need to go back and see where I encountered some supposed 'wrong answers' even though the words are accepted translations in all decent dictionaries. This is not a criticism of this fantastic language learning resource but more a humble suggestion that the choice of translation needs to include more synonyms which in turn will help learners widen their vocabulary.

Duo is designed for beginners that have no prior knowledge of Spanish.

Understood, but presumably the whole idea is to get people from being beginners to having a decent level of proficiency, thus having more than one correct answer, i.e. having more synonyms is an important way for learners to widen their vocabulary
