An antonym is a word with the opposite meaning to another word. If you substitute an antonym for another word in a sentence, it will change the meaning completely. Why learn antonyms? There are two reasons. Antonym pairs big and little happy and sad few and many up and down 1. Antonyms can help you to figure out the meaning of an unknown word in context. Now Lydia was really scared. She had never seen Ben act so petrified. She was used to Ben being fearless at all times. Yet there he stood, pale and trembling. You may not know the word petrified, but you can figure it out because the word fearless is used as an antonym in the next sentence. The words pale and trembling also help you to understand how he must feel in order to look that way. 2. Learning antonyms helps you to increase your vocabulary. The more words you know, the faster and easier it will be for you to read and write. It is also useful when making comparisons. For example, enormous and tiny are antonyms. Read this sentence to see how the writer made a comparison so you could form a picture in your mind. Standing so close to the enormous grizzly bear made Sarah look tiny.
