Meaning of ANTIPODE

Pronunciation:  'anti`powd

 
Webster's 1913 Dictionary
 
 Definition: 
\An"ti*pode\, n.
One of the antipodes; anything exactly opposite.

      In tale or history your beggar is ever the just
      antipode to your king.                   --Lamb.

Note: The singular, antipode, is exceptional in formation,
      but has been used by good writers. Its regular English
      plural would be [a^]n"t[i^]*p[=o]des, the last syllable
      rhyming with abodes, and this pronunciation is
      sometimes heard. The plural form (originally a Latin
      word without a singular) is in common use, and is
      pronounced, after the English method of Latin,
      [a^]n*t[i^]p"[-o]*d[=e]z.
