Asked by Liam

Difference between antonyms and antithesis?

Hi Liam, The difference is minor and can be hard to explain but I’ll do my best. An antonym is the opposite meaning of a word. For example, big/small. Antithesis is the opposite of a word flat out. For example, love/hate. Hope this makes sense!
