    opposite is like a mirror image

    reverse is back to front

    inverse is one divided by the number

      kek brainlet, that's the multiplicative inverse.

    Opposite is static comparison between mirror objects.
    Reverse is switching the position of objects (can be abstract "position" of course).
    Inverse is changing the state of an object into its opposite.

    All of these are context dependent.
    Generally, an opposite is the other related pairing whose nature is antithetical. A reverse is a (horizontal) motion in opposing/antithetical direction. An inverse is a (vertical) motion in anathematizing/antithetical direction.

    As with English words descended from Latin iaco, iacere (to throw) there is little use for literal etymological renderings of words descended from verto, vertere, versus (to turn).

    For example a rejection is not a re-throwing anymore than a reverse is a re-turning.

      What do you mean by a vertical motion, especially when it is used in a metaphorical way vs. a more mathematical way?

        In a context where "inverse" has a distinct meaning from "reverse" it will be clear what "vertical" and "horizontal" mean-- in this general comparison, they function as placeholders.

        In a math context, for example, inverse usually refers to operational inverse, while reverse refers to the right-left of a biconditional. To argue a if and only if b, you first argue "forwards" that a implies b, then show "reversely" that b implies a.

        Another way to say this is, "reverse and inverse are synonyms unless presented in a context where their difference is specified."

      1. ~(p->q)= (~p) and (q)

      2. "Reverse" is not really a well defined logical notion.

      3. "Opposite" is not really a well defined notion, except as being the operational inverse in certain arithmetic/algebra settings.

    Opposite is a linguistic category, inverse is algebraic, reverse is geometrical

    >opposite
    Across from or mirroring, or otherwise providing a Manichean counterpart to the thing.
    "Even if wishes were horses, not every man would choose to ride."

    >Reverse
    When something is changed so that either its pattern or actual motion figuratively or literally is now going the opposite direction that it was initially.
    "If every man rides, then wishes are horses."

    >Inverse
    When something is turned in such a way that what was below is now above, figuratively or literally.
    "If wishes were not horses, then not every man would ride."

        Somewhat obligatory.

        It does carry some of the meaning but isn't really equivalent to the concept. I suppose that's why english amalgamates old english with latin and french so much it allows you to expand on and give nuance to a topic.

    >opposite
    Not having a quality demonstrated by something else. Used more generally than the concept of 'symmetry', which is more relevant to the other words.

    >symmetrical
    Two quantitatively expressible things or processes are symmetrical if one has a quantitative expression which is the same as the other's, with the exception of uniform alteration (usually negation) of some section of the description.

    >reverse
    Undo a process. Involves some spatial or temporal axis along which the reversed process is symmetrical, like making a car move backwards with time when it was previously moving forwards.

    >inverse
    Similar to reverse. A process that recreates the situation prior to another process. The distinction is that an inverse may be asymmetrical and possible even in a situation which isn't reversible. If a pregnant woman gives birth, to reverse the process you have to shove the baby back in there. To invert it, you can feed her the baby and knock her up again.
