Enantiosemy is similar to antonym, polysemy and homonymy. It has some characteristics like all these linguistic categories. Enantiosemy combines several meanings, whereas two of them are opposite to each other, consequently, they are antonyms. This is a specific case of lexical ambiguity . Another definition of enantiosemy is: “A case of polysemy in which one sense is in some respect the opposite of another . E.g. that of dust in I dusted the mantelpiece, meaning that something is removed, vs. I dusted the cake with sugar, meaning that something is added. From Greek enantio- ‘opposite’: modelled by G. C. Lepschy on German ‘Gegensinn’”. It was first described by V. Sherzl in1883, who gave the name to this phenomenon as “enantiosemy”.
