Word And Opposite

When we talk about words and opposites, we are primarily referring to Antonyms. 


Antonyms are words that have opposite meanings. For example, an antonym of day is night, and an antonym of on is off. The term antonym comes from antonymy, which is the grammar term for words that have contradictory meanings—but you can think of antonyms as opposites.

These are some examples of words and their opposites.
