this may seem like this question is not for S&P, but it is.

Main Entry: 1ap?pro?pri?ate
Pronunciation: &-'prO-prE-"At
Function: transitive verb
Inflected Form(s): -at?ed; -at?ing
Etymology: Middle English, from Late Latin appropriatus, past participle of appropriare, from Latin ad- + proprius own
Date: 15th century
1 : to take exclusive possession of : ANNEX
2 : to set apart for or assign to a particular purpose or use
3 : to take or make use of without authority or right
- ap?pro?pri?a?ble /-prE-&-b&l/ adjective
- ap?pro?pri?a?tor /-prE-"A-t&r/ noun


this is the opposite of inappropriate?

The ultimate meaning of our being can only be fulfilled in the paradoxical leap beyond the tragic-demonic frustration. It is a leap from our side, but it is the self-surrendering presence of the Ground of Being from the other side.

no, inappropriate would be the opposite of the adjective
