  1. gradable opposition

    Graded opposition refers to the relationship between two words or concepts in which the meaning exists on a scale or continuum. It involves a comparison of the two concepts in terms of more or less, higher or lower, rather than a simple binary or non-binary opposition. For instance, words like "big" and "small" are in a gradable opposition because they refer to different points on a scale of size, rather than a simple presence or absence of size.
