Synonyms of "Master" and their differences

A: there is no difference.
Q: What is the difference between "it's a master key to bonding with strangers, so to speak." and "it's a master key to bonding with strangers, if you will." ?

Q: What is the difference between I enrolled to a master's degree yerterday and I registered to a master's degree yerterday ?
A: It's only a small nuance difference. Enrolled has a bit of a voluntary sound to it and also suggests a bit that you were allowed in. Registered is more clean. It's a bureaucratic thing. I filed the papers.
Q: What is the difference between master's thesis summary and master's thesis abstract ?
A: "Abstract" is a little more technical than "summary".

"Abstract" is used specifically for research papers, while "summary" has many more uses.

"Please give me the (summary/abstract) of your research paper."
- both are okay 👌🏻

"I don't know if I want to see that movie, could you give me a summary?"
- "summary" is good here, but "abstract" sounds weird and too technical.

Since you are talking about a thesis paper, "abstract" works best in this situation.
Q: What is the difference between If I master English, could I be a pilot? and If I mastered English, could I be the pilot? ?
A: If I mastered English, could I be A pilot? (General statement)

If I mastered English, could I be THE pilot? (Referring to a specific pilot position. This makes me think that there is a pilot job that lots of people are competing for. If you mastered English, could you get it over someone else?)

If I master / If I mastered have the same meaning. Technically "mastered" is correct because this is a hypothetical situation (내가 영어를 통달한다고 하면 비행사가 될 수 있을까?) so you should use subjunctive; however many natives don't.
