Hello words welcome to another episode of this podcast. We are still in the anti words words that start with A. N. T. I. Although they're not always using the actual anti prefix anti anti whatever we looks like we're going to go oh through It looks like the last anti word is the second to last word of this episode and for fun. We can just make it the very last word so everything is neat and tidy all right first word for this episode is anticipate drafty A. N. T. She I S. T. R. O. P. H. E.

B. and B. Capital are a implies A. Equals B. So I think it's sane in that example if A. Equals B. Then a R. B. and B. R. A. Equal the same thing because our eagles are make sense. I guess next. We have antithesis A. N. T. I. T. H. E. S. I. S. This is a noun from fifteen twenty nine. One a one the rhetorical contrast rest of ideas by means of parallel arrangements of words clauses or sentences as in the quote action not words or the quote they promised I missed freedom and provided slavery.

It's not an actual example that uses the word in it so again again this semi example is the quote action not words that is an example of an antithesis there is another a quote that I read they promised freedom and provided slavery one eight two we have these synonyms opposition and contrast as in the antithesis of prose and verse one be one the second of two opposing constituents of an antithesis one be to the direct opposite as in her temperament is the very antithesis of mine to the second stage of a dialectic active process. It looks like this is a Greek word it literally means opposition and that is from antidote to deny to oppose news and that is made by combining anti plus tiffany which means to set and there's more at the word do D. Next is antithetical. We'll also antipathetic. It's an adjective from fifteen eighty three one constituting or marked by antithesis to bean gene in direct and unequivocal opposition synonym says see the word opposite anti thessaly is an adverb next.
