anti[edit]

Adjective sense: against, opposed to.

The defining terms are both prepositions. The usage example shows it complemented by a noun, in the manner of a preposition. There already is a preposition L3 section. DCDuring TALK 16:31, 27 June 2011 (UTC)

Do things like google books:"very anti the" happen with prepositions?​—msh210 (talk) 00:10, 1 December 2011 (UTC)

{{look}}

You can be "very against" something and "very opposed to" something, as well as "very for" something. Unless they're all missing adjective senses, I think it's fairly clear this is a preposition. Delete Smurrayinchester (talk) 09:06, 22 May 2012 (UTC)
Deleted the sense.--Jusjih (talk) 07:31, 13 June 2012 (UTC)


Preposition citations[edit]

Can we get some examples of anti as a preposition? I checked the OED, and anti as a preposition was not listed. WilliamKF (talk) 22:28, 25 December 2013 (UTC)
