The Context Aware Search (CAS) can search by synonyms; you can find more information in these links:

But there are no information about:
  1. What are the synonyms defined into a component?
  2. How does the CAS define the synonyms by default?
  3. Why is useful for the developers define individual search for a synonyms?

Synonyms are used to enhance the search by ensuring that words with the same meaning as query terms are included in the search. This can also be used for abbreviated forms of words. Synonyms are ordered into sets of terms, where each term has the same meaning. A term can contain more than one word, for example, "file system" can be represented as "FS."

#1, If the user does not set the component's synonyms, the default synonyms is the default values set in 
the whole CAS search configuration. But you can still use the "Edit/View Synonyms" button to specify the special synonyms. 

#2. The user can open the Search Configuration editor and locate the Synonyms tab to view the default values.

#3. If the developer defines the "file system, FS" synonyms, he can input the "FS" in search text to search "file system"
