Oppositeness refers to the paradigmatic relationship of two words holding the contrast meanings. The fact that linguistic opposite differs from logical contrast has been discussed in theories, but has not been tested in practice. In this paper, we investigate three main subtypes of Chinese oppositeness, via using logical tests of negation and double-negation. Result shows that purely logical test does not always work on oppositeness, and indicates that contrast relations within different pairs also vary.
