Hi
Knowledge of antonyms empowers people to use contrast and comparison in their oral and written expression.

What is antonym?
 
An antonym is a word that has the opposite meaning of another. The word has two parts:  anti and onym. "Anti" means "no", "onym" means name. Languages are complex ones and different words can be antonyms. But it is not true in all cases. Sometimes it depends on situation. If you change words to antonyms with "not" in text blindly, it can be full nonsence. Another case is to set "not" and prefix "un".
 
I forgive you. 
I don't unforgive you. 
 
Last one sounds strange for me and it has a bit different explanation. It means, that text becomes more various an rich. May unnormal. But we need to see context to decide if opposite word is antonym or not. So words are not antonyms necessarily in all senses. It means that opposite to white can be red in some situations and so on.  In order to better understand antonyms, people analyze synonyms as well. Then complexity of language is revealed more clearly. 

On the image above you can see the cards, which can be used for the game of antonyms; please mix cards and say for children to make right 2 columns.
