Introduction to saying 'opposites' in Polish

Saying things like "this is the opposite of that" can be useful when speaking a foreign language. It can (in a way) double up the amount of things you can talk about (for every word you know, you can then talk about its opposite). Of course, in the real world it isn't as useful as that. But still - useful to know!
