English is a confusing language.
- We bolt the door after shutting it to make sure it stays closed, but a horse gets scared and bolts away.
- We turn a light off, but an alarm clock goes off to wake us up.
- When the stars come out we see them, but when the lights go out, we don’t see anything.
This paradox in meanings is called a contronym. Check out the latest blog video about contronyms (or antagonyms).
Coming Soon: We are still working hard on our vocabulary course project here at Aaron’s English Page. We plan to have our course up and running on UDEMY by next week, if all goes well. (We already have a TOEIC Prep course on that website, see the link in the sidebar) We will be offering a special discount code for Aaron’s English Page blog readers.
