Is there a change in the text match score, when a synonym is matched vs actual word. Eg: Lets say our dataset contains both shade of a colour (Taupe shade of brown grey) and actual colour (grey), if we have configured them as synonyms. If I search for Taupe will the Taupe results be ranked higher and then the results containing grey would pop up ?
