The class was looking at phrasal verbs and one of the example sentences had the word “chimney”, someone asked what are synonyms to chimney. I was stumped but a quick cuppa COCA came to the rescue. In order of most frequent to least COCA said: Pipe, stack, chimney, funnel, conduit, flue, smokestack. From this list I suggested smokestack and flue. A student added helpfully that stack is the word used in industry.
