Shpjegimi nga fjalori i shqipes oponent: ai që jep mendimin kritik për vlerën e një vepre shkencore, letratre etj, kur ajo paraqitet për btoim ose për të fituar një gradë shkencore. Meqenëse ti e ke të përdorur në trajtën "oponenca" do të përdorej si official critic team/group, challenging team/group... e kështu me rradhë.
