Why Teach Antonyms and other aspects of Semantics?
The meanings of words and the relationships of words are referred to as semantics. A reader’s breadth and depth of vocabulary contributes to reading achievement.
  • As the primary goals of reading and writing are determining and communicating meaning, it is important for students to understand the meanings of words and how words function in sentences.
  • As the majority of words in English have multiple meanings or shades of meaning, it is necessary for the reader to be flexible in determining the author’s intended meaning of a word within a sentence.
