Technically, yes, you can add Annotation, in the view you can add “sibling” property or use some synonym property from certain namespace and add your synonym. Also, I have seen ontologies using rdfs:label property to state all possible forms of the given concept. So maybe it is better practice to use that, rather than custom synonym property.

Thank you for your answer. Indeed, i used the rdfs:label annotation.
