  10. 10. Antonyms are broadly divided into two categories: <br /> Graded Antonyms: These express relationships along a continuum.<br /> For example:<br /> Good - bad<br /> Intelligent - stupid<br /> Complementary Antonyms: represent the only two opposite possibilities and there is no middle ground or scale that is involved between the two words. Such antonyms include:<br /> true – false<br /> dead – alive<br /> day – night<br />
  11. 11. Relational Antonyms<br />Pairs of relational antonyms are often considered as a third type. However, they are really a subcategory of complementary antonyms.<br />In this type of antonyms, there is a relationship in which the two opposites must both exist. For example, if someone is selling, there must be someone buying.<br /> husband – wife<br /> prey – predator<br />
