    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,

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