Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
A-1 Verb Strong's Number: g483 Greek: antilego

Gainsay, Gainsayer, Gainsaying:

"to contradict, oppose," lit., "say against," is translated "gainsaying" in Rom 10:21; Tts 2:9, RV (AV, "answering again"), of servants in regard to masters; in Tts 1:9 "gainsayers." Moulton and Milligan (Vocab.) illustrate from the papyri "the strong sense of antilego in Rom 10:21, 'contradict,' 'oppose'."

A-2 Verb Strong's Number: g471 Greek: anteipon

Gainsay, Gainsayer, Gainsaying:

which serves as an aorist tense of No. 1, is rendered "gainsay" in Luk 21:15; "say against" in Act 4:14.
See SAY.

B-1 Noun Strong's Number: g485 Greek: antilogia

Gainsay, Gainsayer, Gainsaying:

akin to A, No. 1, is rendered "gainsaying," in Hbr 12:3, RV, and Jud 1:11. Opposition in act seems to be implied in these two places; though this sense has been questioned by some, it is confirmed by instances from the papyri (Moulton and Milligan, Vocab.).

Gainsay, Gainsayer, Gainsaying:

lit., "not to be spoken against" (a, negative, n, euphonic, anti, "against," rhetos, "spoken"), is rendered "cannot be gainsaid" in Act 19:36, RV.

D-1 Adverb Strong's Number: g368 Greek: anantirrhetos

Gainsay, Gainsayer, Gainsaying:

corresponding to C, is translated "without gainsaying" in Act 10:29; it might be rendered "unquestioningly."
