Synonym Antonyms

Learning synonym antonyms should be a part of all vocabulary building processes.

Why?

Well, there are a number of reasons.

First, it increases the number of words we retain.

Second, synonyms and antonyms are items often tested on English language exams like the Michigan Proficiency.

Third, they are (generally) easier to learn and remember than other non-related words due to the relationship they have with each other. Studies (and practice) show that learning words in combination or relation to other words improves ones retention.

The words synonym and antonym derive from the Greek language and literally mean "same name, or meaning" and "opposite name, or meaning."
