The 3-volume dictionary presents words in German that have opposed readings
as part of their individual polysemy. Such an opposite meaning is, for an
individual word, analogous to the common antonymy that exists between
different words. The concept of opposite meaning is relatively unknown and, in
contrast to synonym and anytonym dictionaries, there exists no dictionary of
opposite meanings for any language. In this sense, the current work is an
innovation and will be of great interest to laypersons with an interest in language
as well as to experts in the field.
