Rate this:
Lesley Jeffries introduces a phenomenon which has not been given the attention it deserves - the contextual construction of oppositional meaning.€ These are opposites not recognisable as such out of context but that are clearly set up this way in the text concerned. € The significance of oppositional meaning is well-known, and has been discussed by scholars for millennia, from Philosophy to Politics.€ But the main emphasis has always been on the conventional opposite: the opposite recognised by lexical semantics. € Starting from socio-cultural viewpoints, moving to original.
