In the studies of opposite pairings, the saying that some opposite pairs have one member as unmarked and the other marked "covers a number of disparate and independent phenomena" (Lyons 1977: 305). A lot of work has been done on selecting criteria for determining the unmarked/marked members (e.g., Lehrer 1985). This paper reviews the three most used criteria (morphological mark, semantic meaning and context-frequency) in previous studies and examines the theoretical criteria with natural language facts, especially with examples of Chinese. The aim is to discuss whether such criteria are capable in practical using.
