Abstract: In an arbitrary neighborhood $ U$ of the identity $ e$ of a connected Lie group there is a subset $ S$ of cardinality $ \mathfrak{c}$ and relatively free , i.e., the only nontrivial equations $ x_1^{{\varepsilon _1}}x_2^{{\varepsilon _2}} \cdots x_n^{{\varepsilon _n}} = e,{\varepsilon _i} = \pm 1$, satisfied by substitution for distinct symbols among the $ {x_i}$ distinct elements of $ S$ are equations that are identities throughout $ G$.
