From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In linguistics the term relational oppositeness refers to the relationship between two words which seem to be opposites of each other but in fact actually imply each other. For example own and belong are relational opposites i.e. "A owns B" is the same as "B belongs to A" Other examples are above and below and employer and employee.
