comment Is there a word that means “nearly synonymous”?
I'm not sure about true synonymy myself, but English is full of words of different linguistic origins that essentially mean the same thing (kingly/regal, paternal/fatherly, etc.). I suspect that this word was coined by someone who does believe in true synonymy.

comment Describing how to value an item or thing
I think all three of these are equally good, but I think 'value' is the clearest choice in terms of second language readers (if that's even a consideration). Also, 'assess your assets' seems a bit clumsy, unless you want alliteration for effect.

'Yousie' retains some of the Australian flavour of 'selfie' too!

+1 The first example here is definitely the most natural sounding, but it's a quoted question and should be punctuated as such.
