A contronym (also spelled contranym) is a word – or short phrase – that is its own opposite. Contronyms can be useful to managers wanting to deliberately create ambiguity, to avoid being accountable for actions, policies, planning or decisions.
Here are some examples to help you with your obfuscation:
off (the switch is off)
on (the alarm went off).
to seed can mean to plant or to fund
to remove seeds.
an invoice for payment
Hoi polloi (who are you marketing to?)
the rank and file
a brilliant solution
an improvised hodge-podge.
Oversight (one of my favourite types of committee)
a tiny bit
a major change.
to give advice
to receive advice.
Lease or rent
to pay for the use of something
to receive money for the use of something.
Sanction (this is the classic example of a contronym)
to view carefully
to view superficially.
to bring forward to discussion
to withdraw from discussion.
to cease due to lack of supply.
Transparent (transparency is a management value)
someone with a stake in an organisation
a bystander holding a stake for those placing a bet.
