Antonyms are words that have contrasting, or opposite, meanings. A word that has the exact opposite meaning of another word is its antonym. Like so much of the English language, “antonym” is rooted in the Greek language. The Greek word anti means opposite.

Since the English language is so complex, people may disagree about which words truly have opposite meanings. With the examples of antonyms listed below, we try to clear that up and offer some tactics for choosing the most appropriate word every time.
