anti- element meaning "against, opposed to, opposite of, instead," from O.Fr. anti- and directly from L. anti- from Gk. anti "against, opposite, instead of," also used as a prefix, from PIE *anti "against," also "in front of" (see ANTE (Cf. ante)). It appears in some words in Middle English but was not commonly used in word formations until modern times.
