The previous two chapters have dealt with the most common functions of antonymy in text, namely to assign additional contrastive value to a nearby pair of words or phrases (Ancillary Antonymy) and to signal exhaustiveness or inclusiveness of scale (Coordinated Antonymy). Over 77 per cent of all database sentences fall into one or other of these two classes. This chapter will discuss the minority of antonyms which are neither coordinated nor ancillary, most of which were attributed to one of six minor classes of antonymy. These classes are recorded in Table 6.1, together with the number of database sentences assigned to each, expressed as raw frequency and as a proportion of the whole database.
