The phrase 'more or less so' refers to something that is true to some degree but may have exceptions. Its antonym can be 'definitely' or 'categorically', which means that there are no exceptions, and the statement is entirely and undoubtedly true. Another antonym can be 'hardly', denoting something that is improbable or untrue. 'Unquestionably' can also be an antonym, which indicates something that undoubtedly holds true without any room for doubt or argument. 'Not necessarily' can be an antonym used to express a degree of uncertainty or ambiguity in the statement instead of absolute certainty. By using these antonyms, one can add precision and clarity to their communication.
