“Why are apartments called apartments if they are so close together?” (Bhatta)
See how many words and phrases you can list that seem to mean the opposite of how they are used…
Oh, and how would you respond to Bhatta’s original question (above)
The term apartment comes from a set of rooms within a dwelling allocated for the use of a particular person or party (apart from those in general use). With the building of large complexes of sets of rooms, the term has simply carried over.
As to words with opposite meanings “military intelligence” is the one that immediately springs to mind 😉
And could play in that realm all day – except I have to drive 300 miles and be there before dinner, so had better get my A out the door and behind the wheel.
