  • Mood:

the synonyms and the antonyms to the words hypocrisy, hypocrite, sincerity

hello, everyone!
sollersuk in answer to my request gave a very interesting idea:
"I'm not sure that I see hypocrisy and sincerity as being poles of the same continuum" - was the answer. The dictionaries that I've looked through point out that the antonym of hypocrisy is sincerity - is it really so, or are there any other antonyms??? As for the synonyms, i've found:Pharisaismcant, sanctimony. What are the real synonyms and antonyms of the words "hypocrisy", "hypocrite", "sincerity"??? Thanks in advance for your help!
