✅ Opposite is the best word to describe two things which are contrary or different, often in placement or character (the opposite side of the room; They reached opposite conclusions).
✅ Reverse is the best word to describe something that starts in one direction or position, and then faces or moves in the opposite direction (reverse course; reverse trend).
✅ Opposite and reverse are sometimes used interchangeably when describing something with two sides (the opposite side of the coin; the reverse side of the paper).
✅ Reverse and opposite are also sometimes used interchangeably to describe opposing statements (the opposite is also true; I think it’s the reverse of what you said).
Do the opposite of what we’re about to say: ignore these synonyms for reverse!
