Synonyms of various in English:
In standard English, the word various is normally used as an adjective. It is best reserved for contexts indicating variety, rather than as a synonym for 'a number of.' In colloquial American speech, various is sometimes also used (as though it were a pronoun) followed by of, as in various of her friends had called —another way of saying some of or several of. This use is discouraged by some traditionalists, however, because various is properly an adjective, not a pronoun
