Shipley, Joseph T. 1984. The origin of English words. The Johns Hopkins University Press. Call number. PE 1571 S54
This is a dictionary of etymology. It tells the etymology of individual words and how do they derive. In addition, it uses the quotation in masterpieces as an example. This book will help me to find of the source of every autoantonym word.

Liberman, Anatoly. 2005. Words origins: and how we know them. Oxford University Press.
In this book, objects and methods of etymology are discussed. Also how does a word change its meaning which is the one of the subtopics that I would like to discuss in my paper is also mentioned in the book.

Fromkin, Victoria. 2003. An introduction to language (7th ed.). Heinle, a part of Thomson Corporation.
This is a linguistic introductory book. The definition of auto-antonyms and anti-antonyms are stated in this book.

Jackson, Howard., & Amvela, Etienne Z. 2000. Words, meaning and vocabulary. The Cromwell Press.
Lexicology is the main topic discussed in this book. The author introduces the base word formation and also the meaning relation (synonyms and antonyms) between words.

Cruse, D.A. 1986. Lexical semantics. Cambridge University Press.
This book discusses meaning on word level. The part that related to my paper will be how do we classified antonyms, which is largely stated. Rather than tell the three types of antonym, it tells the ways and tips to group antonym.
