Webster's 1913 Dictionary

Antipode 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.
