Difficulty:** (1.37)

These seemingly "nonsense" words have pairs of opposites in them. For example:
lshoorntg would be "Long /Short" (LshOorNtG). If you've noticed, the letters in the words are always in the same order. Get the idea? Great! Now try these!

1) Wfateirer
2) Grsokuynd
3) Rpoiocrh
4) Frbeoiezle
5) Ppenecinl
6) Wmaomnan
7) Ldaigrhkt
8) Ounvderer
9) Cdilreatny
10) Riwrgohngt


1) Water/Fire: WfATEireR
2) Ground/Sky: GRsOkUyND
3) Rich/Poor: RpoIoCrH
4) Freeze/Boil: FRbEoiEZlE
5) Pen/Pencil: PpENeCInL
6) Woman/Man: WmaOMnAN
7) Light/Dark: LdaIGrHkT
8) Over/Under: OunVdERer
9) Clean/Dirty: CdiLrEAtNy
10) Right/Wrong: RIwrGoHngT

Cool. First comment this time around. I liked this teaser. Most were easy, but still had to think about it. Thanks for posting. :o

Posted by kwelchans07/10/08
Are pen and pencil opposites?

Posted by katjojo07/10/08
Great!!! I really liked this one!! :D :D :D

Posted by phyllisa07/10/08
A great teaser to start the day and get me thinking!!!!

Posted by flutflutflyer07/10/08
This was really hard, but fun, too. :lol:

Posted by sourdough07/10/08
Ol' SourDough wishes to thank thou for a Fun Teaser! 8) $D :o

Posted by hradilv07/10/08
Awfully easy, but still fun. Some weren't really opposites, though... :-?

Posted by auntiesis07/10/08
Very cool teaser, but as noted by others some were not really opposites. Related would be a better term, but fun puzzle. Thanks. :D :lol: :D

Posted by jcann07/10/08
This was fun. I couldn't get #1 and almost just gave up and was about to click on answer, but then I gave the rest a try and they were not that hard for me. I agree with auntiesis. :)

Posted by mi2mo2tx07/10/08
FonUNe! Enjoyed it. Simple, easy and entertaining! :D

Posted by suganue07/10/08
Easy but fun. i like it :)

Posted by composer07/11/08
Woman/Man - not Opposites - a common misconception. They are two aspects of the same thing. Fire/Water and Pen/Pencil aren't Opposites either...

Posted by scallio07/11/08
Fun, fun, fun!! But much harder than it looked. :lol:

Posted by avonma08/19/08
That was fun! :lol: I got 'em all! :D More, please... :D

Posted by Babe07/10/11
At first it looked hard, but when I got started it fell into place. Loved it!

Posted by sammydj07/10/11
Nice teaser, even though I'm not sure that all of them are opposites :lol:

Posted by wordmama07/10/11
Thanks for this teaser! Got them all pretty readily, even tho a very few were not opposites but contrasting in some way! :D

Posted by doehead07/10/11
Three of these are not opposites,for instance (pen and pencil are both writing instruments, their chemical balance is different. So that does not make them opposites). I could go on and on,but I choose to say the editors don't review their material, or they would quit publishing these incorrect type teasers. :( :( :( I'm sure some of you agree with me, and if you don't so be it.

Posted by kasiecom07/10/11
too easy, no challenge, give me one that makes me think.

Posted by patiencewithaP07/10/11
Fun! Took me a bit on the freeze/boil one, though, the rest came pretty easily. :lol: Great job! :D

Posted by bluejubba07/10/11
yeah i got all of them quite quickly but was really fun actually :) do another one like it :D

Posted by gaylewolf07/10/11
I like this type of teaser. A couple of them jumped out at me :lol: and a couple of them took a few minutes! :roll: Thanks for a good one! :lol:

Posted by jordy5607/10/11
Easy one but well made.Going to my favorites.

Posted by mountaincowboy07/10/11
Very creative, I enjoyed this more than most I have tried. My patience didn't allow me to dwell on Rich/Poor long enough to get it but the rest went down :wink:

Posted by Babe07/10/14
I see I worked this one out back in 2011 so did not try again as the hour is late and I am sleepy. Good one though! :D

Posted by jaycr07/10/14
Easy but fun.

Posted by doodles07/10/14
Interesting, but a bit to easy. :roll:

Posted by HABS293307/10/14
As noted by several others, some of the pairs were not technically opposites but it was still a fun teaser and quite solvable if you put in the few minutes it took.

Posted by gaylewolf07/10/14
This was a good one and just the right amount of challenge for me today. Thanks for posting! :wink:

Posted by auntiesis07/10/14
Good teaser, fairly easy for the most part, a couple of them took an extra second to spot. :D :D

Posted by Zykezex07/10/14
#9 got me too for whatever reason. Good one! :)

Posted by Coolnana07/10/17
Got all of these fairly easily. This was a great puzzle for the whole family to do. Didn't think they were all opposite, but related in some way. A fun puzzle. :D

Posted by dbakashojou07/10/17
I had more trouble with the beginning ones than with the end ones! :oops: :lol: :lol: Really good teaser! :D :D 8) :wink:

Posted by mrbill5107/10/17
Fun, entertaining and easy teaser; got them all very quickly. :D
