I think atleast offspring should be allowed
Edit; and after looking it up (heard of posterity, not sure about progeny, but either way not sure about the exact definition) posyerity and progeny should be allowed too.
All three all listed as synonyms to descendant
and im not even in high school
Never heard of some of these terms.
Actually, progeny was my first answer, too. But when I looked at several definitions - I saw progeny referring to just one generation of offspring, where ancestors can include many generations. Descendants can also include many generations. But progeny: just one. So it's not the opposite.
It's not entirely obvious, though, because the same sources that define progeny as one generation of offspring and descendants as any number of generations . . . .will also list descendants and progeny as synonyms. Two words that are true synonyms to each other would both be antonyms to the same word(s). For example, little is indeed an antonym of both large and big. Similarly, small is an antonym of both words.
i kid i kid.....
but seriously. i tried it.
When you know several language besides your native tongue. (Random, or the one you happen to better at? Or something else?)
Or is it only called second language when you have actually been raised in more than one language (like an english mother and a french father, just to give an example)
Would make sense... because then you say MY second language (not that you own it, but is is more your own than when, say, you learned another language at 30)
You see, english isnt my first language? I know the words, and the meaning of them, but that doesnt allways mean you know what is meant by them ;)
saying analogue is wrong/not the way to spell it, is just as wrong/makes as little sense as saying the word analog is wrong/not the way to spell it.
you are acting like there is some imperical truth. (Now if people would want to see the spelling in spanish or slovene for instance that would be a different matter. Since the question is in english, the answer should be in english. Unless it is something like the name of a city, then it could be in the native la nguage aswell)
