As far as I understood, aware and conscious are synonyms in which the last one being more formal.Is deliberate even more formal or highlighting an aspect I didn't get yet?

  • As far as I understood, aware and conscious are synonyms There are very, very few true synonyms in English. The guidance is "If it is a different word, it has a different meaning or, at least, a different nuance." – Greybeard Apr 14 at 9:51

Aware and conscious can be synonyms in some contexts. If you are aware, or conscious, of something, you can tell that it is happening.

Deliberate is not at all synonymous with them. If an action is deliberate, you are doing it on purpose.
