English term or phrase: MARKEDNESS OPPOSITIONS
Domaine : linguistique

In his description of a gender system, Greenberg exposes a "fundamental contrast" between animates and inanimates, humans and non-humans, and males and females. Due to the obligatory nature of the system, these contrasts create MARKEDNESS OPPOSITIONS: an asymmetrical and hierarchical relationship where one term in an opposition is viewed as containing a mark, and the other as not containing the same mark.

This person is Daniel Toledano's associate (Blue White Translations or Universal Translations) who doesn't pay his invoices on time. He owes me more than USD 900,00 (2 months late) and doesn't answer my emails. Same story happened to other translators. For further info check on TCR mailing list.
