Content of the Dictionary of Antonyms

Antonyms are words whose meanings are more or less opposite from one another. Antonyms can be an invaluable tool for finding the opposite meaning that fits best.

Antonyms are arranged in lists grouped according to sense. Clicking on an antonym will display its full definition in the right-hand panel. You can then cycle through definitions for all of the antonyms in a list by using the keyboard arrows or by clicking on each word.

Each list includes a hide/show chevron, which controls the display of the list of antonyms for each sense. It switches between a detailed display, useful for a thorough search of a wanted meaning, and a summary display, which is useful for a quick scan. A similar chevron in the heading lets you collapse or expand all the lists at once.
