calumny
acquiescence
foundling
brickface
faberge
precunious
putsch
upbraid
anthropomorphization
bowdlerized
truncheon
striation
crawdads
insurrection
superlative
vitiate
suss
epistolary
exculpate
truckle
inveigle
parsimony
phoneme

unconscionable
rebuke
dolloped

Coming soon!

dudgeon
perissodactyl
fulminate
apostate
seiche
nabob
mufti

and more! Plus I'll use them in context, and ask the reader to pick which of 4 choices is most nearly the antonym of the word in question!

I was in such dudgeon watching the perissodactyl sloth truckle to the nabob (in mufti) about the effects of the seiche and how that made him no longer worship the sea, that I fulminated at that apostate.

I upbraided Brickface for his precunious acquiescence to the foundling's bowdlerized anthromorphization -- what calumny that faberge putsch was, a truncheon in the face of apostate dudgeon, a fulmination from the nattering nabobs of sloth, truckling to the perissodactyl ruminants of the etheric lore of yesteryear, with their virtual seiche of slop in mufti.

How I hated them all, Brickface, the foundling, the nabobs, they were all jerks.
