What's a word that describes synonyms and antonyms together?

Asking for a friend. Said friend is:
A) Tired of writing "synonyms and antonyms" over and over
B) Trying to shorten the paper she's writing that contains this phrase.

She asked me if I knew what, if any, category of word might contain them.
My own search has yielded me nothing, except maybe "Semantic relations", which really isn't appreciably shorter, and might not be totally complete or accurate, and "-onyms", which is plenty short, but over-inclusive, and maybe too informal.
I suppose I may have to put up the hat signal.
