    opposite of "bring"

    Please tell me the opposites of word "bring".

    Perhaps "take" is one of its antonyms, I think. Am I right?

    Also provide me with more antonyms of the word "bring".

    Re: opposite of "bring"

    Thank you for your link.

    But in that site, only (drop and leave) has been given as its antonyms.

    But, I think, "take" is also its antonyms. e.g. Please take this documents to my office; Please take my parents along with you to home.


    Please help me on this.

    Curious. The first thing that comes to my mind when someone asks what is the opposite of bring is take. It has to do with direction. When you bring something you move it from that place to this place. When you take something you move it from this place to that place.

    Say:
    But I think "take" is also an antonym for "bring", e.g., "Please take these documents to my office." "Please take my parents with you when you go home."


    Please help me with this.
