Dear Translators,
Antagonyms are words that are pronounced and spelled the same but have an opposite meaning. An example is the word "bad". There is the normal meaning and the slang meaning of "good".
The link that you see above leads to a list of these words and phrases with definitions and example sentences for some.
I have found this list interesting and surprising.

This link was very interesting (or perhaps I should say "cool"!), thanks a lot.

There is at least one page on there that is, how can I put this... representative of a slightly old-fashioned sense of humour.

Those who prefer their humour to be politically correct should, perhaps, avoid the 'book titles' page, which could potentially offend those offended by racial and religious stereotyping.
