English words that are their own antonyms
What is a word that is a contradiction of itself? I googled this and I got "paradox", but paradox means:
A paradox is a seemingly true statement or group of statements that lead to a contradiction or a situation which seems to defy logic or intuition.
What I am actually looking for is a word that actually has two different meanings. This came up while I looked up the meaning of the word "scan", and I found out that it had several meanings:
–verb (used with object)
to glance at or over or read hastily: to scan a page.
to examine the particulars or points of minutely; scrutinize.
I realized that there was a term for this, but I couldn't quite remember.
Can someone please help me?
