A: I would say they're the same.
Q: allay と alleviate と assuage と ameliorate と mitigate はどう違いますか?

Alleviate: This is usually used when referring to reducing the suffering of a person. It may be physical suffering, but it can also be emotional or mental suffering. Most often, this would be used as "to alleviate pain", but you could also say something like "to alleviate anxiety" or "to alleviate a burden (of a debt)" for example.

Mitigate: This is usually used when referring to reducing the effect of something negative, like something (a person or object) which causes physical damage or something (a problem or issue) which may be harmful to people or could affect the way certain systems work, both natural or man-made. For example, if you are familiar with game terminology, you could say "the defence stat mitigates the damage from an enemy's attack stat" (if this doesn't make sense to you, sorry! 😛). You could also say something like "to mitigate the effects of global warming" or "to mitigate the economic recession".

Appease: This is usually used when referring to stopping someone from being angry or aggressive. In general, it just means satisfying another person, usually by complying with their demands, in order to prevent a conflict between you and that person.

Mediate: This is usually used when referring to a person who tries to prevent or stop a conflict between two other people or two other groups.

Pacify: Very similar to "appease", but generally only refers to reducing anger

Placate: Pretty much the same as "pacify"

Quell: This generally means to stop something by using force or effort. Very often used in the same way as "pacify"
