    Hello there EJ,

    First, check out our glossary page on antonyms, which contains some examples: http://www.usingenglish.com/glossary/antonym.html

    I had a quick search for you, and came up with a couple of online dictionaries that give antonyms:

    http://www.synonym.com/

    http://vancouver-webpages.com/wordnet/

    http://thesaurus.reference.com/

    And if you want to look for more dictionaries that I have missed out, here is a great place to find them:

    http://www.yourdictionary.com/diction1.html

    I hope these help, and if you need any further help or advice, please feel free to ask!

    Regards,

    Is that BE? (In AE we would say I did a quick search.)

    We could use both. Red is correct in BE, implying that he did more than one search.
