Pick an Antonym

An antonym is simply the opposite meaning of a particular word.
For example:

  1. It was cold outside today.
  2. Really? I thought it was warm compared to last week.

Yes, the word ‘cold’ is typically an adjective, but in the first sentence, it’s a noun.
However, the opposite of cold is warm.

See which antonyms you can come up with for the following words:

Sit                            
Laugh                    
Go                           
Talk                        
Write                      
Potent                    
Active                    
Paradise                
Increase                
Allow                     
Dispute                 
Honest                  
Permit                  
Accept                  
Acknowledge      

Let’s look at the following sentence and how to rewrite it using an antonym. Always think about the main meaning of the sentence.

For example, you wouldn’t say that the opposite of the following sentence:

* Dorothy writes well.
... is
* Dorothy reads well.

If you had to come up with an antonym for this sentence, you would say,
* Dorothy writes poorly.

The word to replace in this sentence would be well. It’s the adverb that we need to change, not the verb in this example. Of course, this would depend on what you’re being asked if you were doing a test.

OK, so here's a table with some common antonyms for each of the words above.
These are NOT the only antonyms for these words, they are ONLY one choice. There is usually more than one choice for every word.
