Similar Words But Drastically Different Meaning

Words are interesting. Some are outright straight-forward. But some are shocking.

Take for example:
"look" and "see", has the similar meaning.

But how about,
"overlook" and "oversee"?

The meaning changes, even though "look" and "see" seem to be the same!
The meaning is a drastic change.

When your in-law goes out of the house, does he become an "out-law" ?

Just simply an "in" and "out" changes the meaning completely!
A good person can be mistakenly taken as bad, if words are played about.

.... points to ponder about.
