Now let’s try something different. Let’s try and find the most long-winded opposite of Laughing at the Sky.

  1. Laughing at the Sky
  2. Crying at the Earth
  3. Weeping and making sad sounds in the direction of the terrestrial sphere

Now let’s see what happens if I try and turn that entire long-winded antonym sentence back into the opposite again, and see what it comes out with:

  1. Weeping and making sad sounds in the direction of the terrestrial sphere
  2. Ascending and destroying joyful silence in the deviation of the otherworldly heavens

Hmm, I’m not quite sure what I’m trying to do here, but it’s been fun…

    Good Morning, Marcus and thanks for displaying this ever expandable word exercise. This is an excellent means of growing one’s vocabulary. This is also an easy way of warming up to write. A superb activity for writers and bloggers.

    It could also be turned into a playful challenge for youngsters that need to grow their vocabularies. Large, varied vocabularies make reading easy and fun. Reading brings us out of the darkness and enables us to walk more comfortably towards the sun.
