The second word of each word pair contains the letters of an antonym of the first word in the same manner as a kangaroo word, but in reverse order. (A female wombat's pouch faces backward).

bright liMpID      (dim)
good   commenDABle (bad)
lass   DAmseL      (lad)
old    WizENed     (new)
out    baNIsh      (in)
small  negliGIBle  (big)
