What is an Antonym? What is a Synonym? | Etymology of Synonym and Antonym

The term “synonym” derives from the Greek word «συνώνυμο» (συν + όνομα). It means “equivalent” and, in semantics, it indicates a word or phrase that has the exact or very similar meaning to another word or phrase.

The opposite applies to “antonym” (αντώνυμο). An antonym is a word or phrase that has the opposite meaning of another word or phrase.

For example, a synonym of the English word “tasty” is the word “delicious”. An antonym of the English word “tall” is “short”.

Now, take pen and paper and try to find the answer to the questions down below.

Writing Greek on Paper

greek handwriting

Writing Greek on paper is different from typing Greek on a computer.

Although most of Helinika’s visitors have no problem typing the Greek letters, they often find it difficult to write those letters on paper. That is why we prepared a short video on our YouTube channel that you can use to mimic a common writing style for the Greek letters. It goes without saying that there are many more handwritings out there and you can develop yours with a lot of practice. Writing in a different alphabet is not easy but it is definitely worth the effort!
