How to get command over antonyms and synonyms?
You might have used a dictionary. It meant to get meaning, pronunciation, usage, part of speech of a word. But it is a little difficult to get antonym or synonym for a word from a dictionary.
There comes the existence of thesaurus. It meant to get synonyms and sometimes antonyms for a word.
Suggestion: When you read a lesson from textbook you read for the gist of the passage at first. When you read the same second time you may concentrate on each incident and event and try to think beyond the lines. Then you will try to answer the question under comprehension section. But now to find new vocabulary you should read the same text again concentrating on some thematic words and underline them or list them. Then find the antonyms and synonyms from thesaurus. Finally make use of different synonyms and antonyms in your own sentences either in oral or written.
