Each Wensday in my english class, our homework is to right the synonym and antonym of my spelling words. Seems easy enough? Only problem is that I have to write Antonyms for every letter! Not just for verbs,oh no. We hafta do the antonyms of the nouns too. Like the antonym of Brochure.huh?

Hmmmm.... so right you are :D

The antonym to ignorance might be information, but I still don't feel that theory is bulletproof....

The opposite of a group of people passing laws is going foward positively?

Homer's Odyssey is a pretty good book. A lot better than anything else I read in HS. I have so much HW to do here myself. I have some Computer Ethics, a PERL script, and docuementation with a presentation for both Technical Writing, and Senior Design. Should not be too hard for this weekend.

I remember last year when I took "Theory of Programing Languages." Damn that was the hardest class I have ever taken. We basically made our own programing language, and they are soooo complex its not even funny. I remember pulling all nighters for a solid week with a group of 4 and still not producing anything that even would complile or parse. My God that was a pain. Since then, I have not complained about HW even again, even when I am loaded down. :cool:

Each Wensday in my english class, our homework is to right the synonym and antonym of my spelling words.

Not to nitpick, but since you are in an English class:

"Wensday" should be Wednesday but, ironically, you used an inappropriate homonym with "right." It should read "write." :D

But just for fun... here are some words that are they're own antonyms:

word-------------Duel Meanings

dike-----------wall; ditch
bad------------negative; good (US slang)
continue------keep on doing; to adjourn
fast------------rapid; unmoving (as in stand fast)
garnish-------to curtail (wages); to enhance (food)
critical---------opposed to; essential to
oversight-----care; error
transparent--obvious; invisible
weather-------to with stand; to wear away
strike----------to miss (baseball); to hit

Oh... an let us not forget:

Skin------------to add skin to (JK model); or take skin from (a cat)


Here are som Homophones (words that sound the same but are opposite)

aural; oral = heard; spoken
erupt; irrupt = burst out; burst in
raise; raze = erect; tear down

In case you didn't notice... I enjoy English and writing. Have fun in school.

That school of yours is quite mad - there ARE NO antonyms to nouns

The Columbia Guide to Standard American English (1993) says:

An antonym is a word that means the opposite of another word; thus antonym is the antonym of synonym. The related adjectives are antonymous and antonymic; they occur infrequently and mean much the same thing, “like or characteristic of an antonym.” Antonymy is a relatively rare noun meaning “a pair of such opposed terms.”

I'm assuming that your native language is Dutch (though I suppose it could be Frisian or even English for all I know) so grammatical rules are going to be different.

The antonym for bulletproof would be vulnerable. It could also be weak or defenseless.

Nouns can quite easily have antonyms, but most people frown upon antonyms that are different word types (nouns, verbs, adverbs).

SKin :p

Dilbert: This changes old shoes into a parsley substitue!
Boss: This looks incredibly brilliant and completely unmarketable!
Dilbert: thanks. i'm technology-driven.

Hahahah homework. I do not miss those days even though I will have them again in another two or three months. College is a lot easier than high school. Let me restate that. Community College is much easier than High School. The only downside to not being in school is working approx 40 hours a week and worrying about food, a place to live, and why your cat won't stay off your lap when you are playing computer games.

The weirdest books I read in High School were The Green Knight which is an Arthonian book and that one book that was loosely based on the 13th Knight? (Antonio Banderas). It is the one with Grendel where the hero goes to the foreign land and slays the creature that cannot be impaled and stuff. I think it starts with a W.

The Odyssey was a great tale. Most Greek and Roman writings are.

Question: What is the antonym for spam? (dual, triple, etc. affiliation word meanings).

Hehe.... first of all: In Denmark we speak Danish, yes :rolleyes:

The only nouns that are antonyms and synonyms are the words themselves: "Antonym" and "Synonym"... It just dawned on me, sorry if I sound a bit stupid here....

But- The words "bulletproof", "vulnerable", "weak" and "Defenseless" are all adjectives in my world, not nouns....

Ha! I was thinking you were in the Netherlands.... LOL. THat must be Druid. :-)

SkinWalker is Bulletproof. I'm a Bulletproof SkinWalker. Can be both ;-)

I'm taking German in college and that's really making me think a lot about English.... I'm not used to a language were you can put the subject anywhere in the sentance and the meaning will depend upon the accusative used.
