Blog SPaG Monsters' Grammar Guide - Antonyms & Synonyms
Here we are back with another tip to help you and therefore help your children, with that pesky grammar vocabulary. Today, we’re looking at antonyms and synonyms:
This is a word or phrase that means the same, or nearly the same, as the starter word. Example:
Cold- freezing, icy, chilly
This is a word or phrase that means the opposite of the starter word. Example:
Cold- warm, hot, toasty
The easiest way to remember the difference is by thinking of the ‘s’: A synonym is the same.
