Do you sometimes struggle to find the ‘right’ word for your writing? I do. Maybe, in helping myself, I can help other writers.

Today’s words: Ban/Permit, Dilemma or problem, Mauerbauertraurigkeit,
Ban/Permit, are antonyms. i.e. they mean the opposite of each other. Antonyms can be difficult to discover, as most thesauruses provide synonyms for words but not their opposites. There are several good reference sources, and I use The New Nuttall Dictionary of English Synonyms and Antonyms.
Ban has many synonyms, including exclude, obstruct, restrain, prohibit and disapprove.
Permit also has a number of meanings, including make possible, assent, facilitate, and consent.
