So, I notice that "flammable" and "inflammable" mean the same thing,
but "corrigible" and "incorrigible" are antonyms.

Do you know of other pseudo-antonyms besides the flammable ones?

Interesting. Two threads pop up, the authors of both insisting that any posters go to the other. Both on a mutually intelligible topic, too.
