Synonyms of "Console" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between console and assuage ?
A: Yes. You are correct. To assuage means to lessen or soothe a feeling. To console means to lessen a real person's bad feelings.

BTW in my experience, "assuage" is usually used as "assuage [a person's] fears". That means "lessens [a person's] fears".
Q: What is the difference between console and comfort someone ?
A: To comfort someone is more colloquial, and thus feels more intimate, while to console someone is a bit more formal and can feel (at least to me) more detached. It is more common to say “comfort someone” than “console someone” in everyday speech.
Q: What is the difference between console and comfort ?
A: To console someone or to comfort someone means the same thing.
Q: What is the difference between console and pacify ?
A: If you console someone, you’re comforting them

If you pacify someone, it’s more like you are trying to appease a child that’s having a tantrum by giving them what they want.
Q: What is the difference between to console and to comfort ?
A: Console and comfort work in mostly the same way, however I tend to take console to be with a more drastic loss. For example if a friend has lost a close relative then I would console them, however if they merely had a bad exam result I would comfort them.
As far as I can express to console someone is to try and soothe them, where as to comfort is to strengthen them or try to offer support.

I hope that helps, if I wasn't clear or confusing then please feel free to ask a follow up question :)
