Dictionary of Antonyms

One of the elementary operations of thought and reasoning is the comparison of contrasting concepts. The simple mention of a given word often means that one with an opposing meaning is not far away.

The exact nature of these contrasts, of course, varies greatly, which is why Antidote’s antonyms are grouped according to sense and context.
