Missing Words

There are some words in the English language that don't have the opposites you would normally expect: for instance, "Inept"; "Disgruntled"; and my favorite, "Unkempt".

This post doesn't really have a point. I just wanted to say that I would be a l0t more gruntled in my life if my son was more ept at keeping the house kempt.

Actually the OED does note: "ept: Used as a deliberate antonym of 'inept': adroit, appropriate, effective"

weird: the captcha is asking me to type halla, as in halla at your boy...
