Antonymy is the technical name used to describe 'opposites', pairs of
words such as rich/poor, love/hate and male/female. Antonyms are a
ubiquitous part of everyday language, and this book provides a
detailed, comprehensive account of the phenomenon. This book
demonstrates how traditional linguistic theory can be revisited,
updated and challenged in the corpus age. It will be essential
reading for scholars interested in antonymy and corpus linguistics.
