My dictionary lists the following verbs as synonyms for "include":

  1. activities include sports and drama incorporate, comprise, encompass, cover, embrace, involve, take in, number, contain; consist of, be made up of, be composed of; formal comprehend. antonym exclude.

  2. don't forget to include the cost of repairs allow for, count, take into account, take into consideration. antonym omit, leave out.

But I need a NOUN not a verb.

Three nominalized synonyms or noun synonyms that sprung to mind:


The above examples, however, only work for the second definition of include in your quote, which means to take into account.

For the first sense of the word (to incorporate, comprise), you could try the following:

component • constituent • element • member • unit • item • ingredient • part • activity • type, etc.

  • Thank you. That set me on the right path. "Addition" was the word I was trying to recall. "Extra" is another one that works. And I think I will go with "extras." Mar 14, 2011 at 16:01
  • @Joshua: Indeed, I contemplated including extra initially, but now that you mention it, I will take the liberty to include it!!

  • I'm doing translation work for a hotel and needed to get the wording right. I came up with "all extras included." I needed to use "included" and it would have been strange to say "all included stuff included." Great help Jimi. Mar 14, 2011 at 16:54

"Include" is a verb. Its corresponding/derived noun is "inclusion". A word with similar meaning is "incorporation" [ =To unite (one thing) with something else already in existence ] (but it's not a synonym).
