Sometimes, I'm really blocked in remembering some words, especially termini technici.

I know e.g. that the contrary of 'erimitic' is 'cenobitic' - but what's the special term of this contrast (not only for this example, of course Laughing )?

Erimitic? Is that the same as being an anchorite?

Are you thinking of the term antonym - a word whose meaning is the opposite... like happy-sad?

Antonym it is Piffka (I was just too lazy to lokk it up .... and then I suddenly remembered after posting this question.)

Anchorites were a bit different to Eremites, I believe. Eremitic monasticism is the first and original form of monastic life in Christianity.
