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.
