Synonyms and Antonyms Applied in the Newspaper "The Economist"
Further on, dealing with the antonyms and their frequency in the researched texts, we can point out the consistent contrast of the pessimistic reality facts and disputably optimistic future prospects. Namely, the couple of words which showed the opposite meanings were: to remain – to evaporate, to lose, to ditch; headwind – tailwind; solace – anxiety, tension; elation – gloom, downgrade; safe – life-threatening, sinister. All the opposite meanings present different choice of applied approach.
The most satisfactory conclusion that we can come to is that not only in literary works lots of various synonyms and antonyms are presented, but also describing serious business pending matters. Besides, the survey also proved that expanded vocabulary of synonyms and antonyms is generally used in order not to be repetitive and provides different approach to the same idea. Finally, one should not forget that the majority of the synonyms and antonyms is not equally the same, but have different shades of meaning, according to the certain context.
