Antonym

An antonymis a word that has the opposite meaning of another word. Similar to synonyms, a word might have several possible antonyms, each with different meanings. For example, some antonyms for the word “short” are “tall,” “long,” “equal,” “lengthy,” “extensive,” “friendly,” and “gradually.” Therefore, it is important to understand the specific and the suggested meaning of each antonym so you can choose the best word for the situation, as shown in Exhibit 9-2.
