Near Antonyms

amal1331Amal1331 on 03/21/2007

NearAntonyms Photo Near antonyms are words that are not antonyms under the strict definition of an antonym used by a thesaurus but that have meanings that contrast with a synonym of a word. For example, abet is not so opposite to frustrate as encourage is, but abet and frustrate have contrasting meanings and so abet is considered a near antonym to frustrate and visa versa. Can you pick the near antonyms?

This would all be dependent on the dictionary the maker of the
quiz used. It isn't a universal acceptance of what the antonym
is and there are several answers that can be accepted for each
