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. I came across both words once upon a time and can only ever remember the one. If you can help me with the second one, it will certainly ease (for a little while) my insatiable curiosity. Thank you!
You made me curious, and I had to search for this one to get it out of my head!
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?
