If there is a new synonym to be included in the new prints of English Thesauruses, then it will be “Kuwait”, and it is for:
- Oil or Petroleum, the crude product that is distilled and refined to produce a wide variety of industrial oils and oil-based products.
I think Mirriam-Webster should be updated.
