Oppositions to deconstruct

Our world, our language is made up of oppositions. These oppositions have a curious relationship to each other. One way to achieve an understanding of those oppositions is to analyse the spatially. Is, for example, yes really the opposite of no? If it is, is that opposition symmetrical, in the sense of left and right, or is it diametrical like a head-on collision? Or is it more like a high and low difference? Does the one exclude the other or merely push it aside a bit? The answers to these questions are rarely as straightforward as you might think.
