I am using NHunSpell Library.
Every time the loop run it overwrite the previous values in synonym2(array).
I don't want it to overwrite i want it to add onward.

What I have tried:

C#
List<string> synonym1 = new List<string>();
                string[] synonym2 = new string[50];
                foreach (ThesMeaning meaning in tr.Meanings)
                {
                    foreach (var synonym in meaning.Synonyms)
                    {
                        synonym1 = meaning.Synonyms.ToList();
                      
                    }
                    synonym2 = synonym1.ToArray();
                    Console.WriteLine(" Synonym:"+string.Join("\n", synonym2));
                }

You can't append to an array - use a list and just append the values. If you desperately need an array then convert to an array after both loops have finished

how to append in list

Use the .Add() method of the List. List(T) Class (System.Collections.Generic)[^]

Arrays aren't flexible - they can't increase and decrease in size once they are declared.
What I would do is replace the array with a List, but even if we do that you need to look fairly carefully at what exactly you are trying to do - that code is decidedly odd.
C#
foreach (var synonym in meaning.Synonyms)
{
    synonym1 = meaning.Synonyms.ToList();
}
Why do you have a loop here at all, given it just does the same thing every time you go round it?
Probably what you want to do is something like this:
C#
List<string> synonyms = new List<string>();
foreach (ThesMeaning meaning in tr.Meanings)
{
    synonyms.AddRange(meaning.Synonyms);
}
Console.WriteLine(string.Join("\n", synonyms.ToArray()));</string></string>
