    Opposites Attract

    1#

    In the following code, each symbol stands for one of five letters.

    ! stands for T, E, O, Z, or Y
    ? stands for F, G, A, Q, or I
    # stands for N, I, W, A, or U
    $ stands for T, E, N, I, or H
    < stands for R, C, A, S, or B
    * stands for I, D, E, U, or S
    & stands for J, I, E, P, or K
    ^ stands for O, L, G, I, or H
    > stands for L, S, N, C, or E

    The nine letter code word, <$^&?*!#>, can be translated into two English words that are opposites. What are the two words?

    The short word was, surprisingly, harder than the longer one.
