Leisure Vocabulary: Word Pairs

Definitions of words use other words, of course.  Among those words, synonyms are invaluable for giving a sense of what a word means.  Yet definitions also benefit from opposing words and phrases.  “The Earth is like a ball — a big ball, not like the one I’m holding here.”  Antonyms — direct opposites — are especially useful.  War and peace; light and darkness.

Starting from those premises, I have begun to develop a set of word pairs that identify aspects of what leisure is or can be, as opposed to what it does not appear to be.  Entries in this “Leisure Definition – Word Pairs” category, in this blog, address those word pairs.
