Many word-combinations are built up by means of contrasting pairs, as up and down, inside and out, from top to bottom and the like. Stylistic opposition, which is given a special name, the term a n-t i t h e s i s, is of a different linguistic nature: It is not only the semantic aspect which explains the linguistic nature of antithesis, the structural pattern also plays an important role.
The antagonistic features of the two objects or phenomena are more easily perceived when they stand out in similar structures. This is particularly advantageous when the antagonistic features are not inherent in the objects in question but imposed on them. The structural design of antithesis is so important it would produce.

Antithesis has the following basic functions: But as a rule antithesis displays one of the functions more clearly than the others.
An interesting example of antithesis where the comparative function is predominant is the madrigal ascribed to Shakespeare: Youth is full of pleasance, Age is full of care; Youth like summer morn, Age like winter weather, Youth like summer brave, Age like winter bare: Youth is full of sport, Age's breath is short, Youth is nimble, Age is lame: Youth is hot and bold, Age is weak and cold, Youth is wild, and Age is tame: For methinks thou stay'st too long.Antithesis is a device bordering between stylistics and logic.
