Antonymy is the technical identify used to explain 'opposites', pairs of phrases corresponding to rich/poor, love/hate and male/female. Antonyms are a ubiquitous a part of daily language, and this publication offers an in depth, accomplished account of the phenomenon. This ebook demonstrates how conventional linguistic concept could be revisited, up-to-date and challenged within the corpus age.

Then, for each cell in the study area, there is a vector of 6 by 1 measurements as input of LR model. 2 shows six variables compiled in Arc/Info Grid format as inputs of LR model at 1988. There are two constraints for simulation of new urban areas in SMA. First, cells that are urban areas in 1988 are obviously not candidates for new urban areas in 2000. Second, cells that are protected legally from new urban areas are assigned the absolute lowest suitability value in the final suitability maps.
However, the conflict between farmland extension and the demand of water resource still exists. Farmland development has encountered the limit due to water supply. In order to better monitor land cover change and analyze the carrying capacity of cultivation in that region, an estimation model which can represent the relationship between water supply and farmland change is the goal of future work.

1 Study Area and Data The study area is centered at Yuli County, Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region of China. It is located at the fringe of Taklimakan Desert. Topography shows a incline from higher terrain in the northwest to the southeast. This region represents a typical arid environment with desert vegetation and soils in the northwest of China. The rainfall in this region averages around 30 mm a year. 25 billion m3 a year in recent years (Zhou 2007), the amount of rainfall is minimal. Tarim River, the largest inland river in China flows from the west to the east, while Konqi River flows out of Lake Bosten from the north, forming the major sources of water supply of the region.
