Re: Words that convey opposite meanings

Sometimes these words "on" and " off" are too confusing for me in the US."Off" could be taken as ' "On"...
eg. the alarm went "Off"

I think you have to consider the verb+preposition combination. Here Off means toggling and On implies continuity. Like she went on rambing...
Although when alarm is ringing and it stops you might say alarm went away.

I think she is talking about colloquial usage among teens when they say awful to mean good. I often say khatarnak for dangerous as well as most pleasant things.
