Usage notesEdit

  • Anti- should not be confused with ante-, which is a prefix of Latin origin meaning before. (However, anti- does exist as a variant spelling of ante- in some borrowed words, such as anticipate and antipasto, but this spelling cannot be used to coin English words.)
  • Anti- sometimes becomes ant- before words beginning in a vowel.
