    Opposite of the adjectives


     OPPOSITES

     

    When you see an adjective in a sentence, ask yourself if it's possible to replace it by its opposite.

    You will notice that some adjectives have several opposites depending on the context.

     

    The opposite of 'short', for example, could be 'long' or 'tall'.

    Can you think of any more examples like this? 

    A good dictionary will help you. It's another word partnership problem !

    ........................................

     

     

    Exercise : Complete each sentence with the opposite of the word in brackets.
