*Deedwords forefastened with ‘again-’, ‘gain-’, or ‘with’ in the meaning of ‘against’ bespeak not the thing being gainstood to, but bespeak the thing doing the gainstanding. Thus, to gainsay oneself is to speak one's being against something, whereas to gainsay towards oneself is to say something against oneself.
