    Thanks. I was told it was another word. The one you mentioned may qualify. I don't know.

    I was told that two things can CLEAVE TO one another.
    And two things can be CLEAVED apart FROM one another.

    What do you think crowd?

    MENSA is a society of geniuses. In Spanish, mensa means stupid.

    Not quite as good as cleave but still interesting.

    He said English on both counts. The word has to be English on both definitions.

    My solution was the word "bound" because it means that you either "move" or that you "cannot move". But now looking for this at google I found a cool site with tons of word that imo fit for the puzzle question.

    http://towerofenglish.com/cellisantagonym.html

    some examples:
    clip (to attach - to cut off)
    fearful (causing fear - being afraid)
    overlook (to pay attention - to ignore)
    left (to remain - to have gone)
