## What is another word for diagonals?

Pronunciation: [da͡ɪˈaɡənə͡lz] (IPA)

The term diagonals refers to a geometric shape that forms a diagonal line from one corner to another. Some synonyms for this word include oblique lines, slanting lines, angled lines, and skewed lines. These words all describe a line that is neither vertical nor horizontal, but instead moves at an angle. Another synonym for diagonals that is used in mathematical contexts is bisecting lines, which refer to lines that intersect at the midpoint of a given shape. Regardless of the specific synonym used, all of these words describe lines that add an element of interest and dynamism to an otherwise static geometric shape.

# What are the opposite words for diagonals?

The word "diagonals" refers to lines that run obliquely or at an angle across a shape or space. Antonyms for the word diagonals would be terms such as perpendiculars or horizontals. A perpendicular line is one that is at a right angle to another line while a horizontal line is parallel to the horizon or the ground. Both these terms are antonyms of diagonals because they describe lines that run in a different direction. While diagonals add some style and complexity to a shape or design, perpendiculars and horizontals often create a sense of stability and balance.
