Antonym in a sentence as a noun

I like it, I see it as an antonym to whatever we call those "top ten weird science facts" posts.

It's missing my favorite auto-antonym phrase "off the menu".

Re the manticore home page, a minor nit: the antonym of fine-grained is coarse-grained, not course-grained.

There's a bicycle shop in the area called "virtuous cycles" and this is the first time I've realized that they mean the antonym of "vicious cycle".

But the author has it exactly backwards in his general point; "community" is the antonym, not synonym, of "everyone".

For that reason, it's not a universal anto-antonym like say, flammable / inflammable.

It's not obvious that "bipartisan" and "nonpartisan" are always auto-antonyms.

Well, "figuratively" is an antonym for "literally", and this specific use of literally means figuratively.

Not that the political meanings of liberal / conservative in the US are very strongly tied to the literal meanings of the words, but isn't "conservative" actually an antonym of "innovative"?

Literally is literally an auto-antonym used to emphasise a figurative expression.

Although it's worth pointing out that Google should care very much about the "influence" of the parts of society it openly favors or [ insert antonym here, it's too early in the morning ].Google has gained a lot of enemies for a variety of reasons, size and success in particular.
