You got your synonym in my antonym…

July 7, 2009 § 10 Comments

I’m curious. Can anyone else think of a word that is simultaneously it’s own antonym and synonym?

The only two I can think of are sanction, which can mean both to allow an action, or to prevent an action; and cleave, which means to sever, or to join together.

Any of you logophiles out there know of any others?
