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.

  • 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." – Joshua Robison Mar 14 '11 at 16:01

  • 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. – Joshua Robison Mar 14 '11 at 16:54
  • quod includi debent includitur – shaunc May 24 '17 at 4:52

"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).
