Word Game ~

So, I was looking through this Teach Yourself Croatian book out of curiousity and the words looked like an absolute jumble to me. Just... gibberish. My native language is English, and I've been exposed to a variety of others, though, apparently, nothing like Croatian.

I was then wondering if two languages can be considered opposites of one another. I'm not exactly sure on how to determine that, but perhaps that can be part of this game?

[ For the recordI don't think English and Croatian can be complete opposites, because a part of me thinks that the alphabets should be different themselves - that's just what sparked the question in my head XP]
