    Question Definition of opposites

    Hi dear teachers!
    Is the definition of opposites I wrote correct?
    Definition: Opposites are word pairs that are totally different in meanings.
    Also, should we use meaning (singular) or meanings (plural)?
    Best regards!

    Re: Definition of opposites

    Opposites (antonyms) are words that have contrary meanings.

    They are different in meaning but the important factor is that the meaning of one is contrary to the meaning of the other.
