Ok, what two words in the english language are antonyms to themselves?
This is an odd one, because I only know one of the words. The first word is cleave because you can cleave something apart and two things can cleave together.

Here are a few:
Enjoin can mean to order to do something or to prohibit from doing something
Sanction can mean to approve or penalize
Nice . . . ! It seems that those qualify. Any others?
