I would like to know if the following universal claim holds:
There exists no lexeme that can mean X and the negation of X. (For example, no lexeme can express “to go” and “to not go”).
I wonder if such “bipolar polysemy” exists in any lexeme, because I cannot think of any, and whether this claim is truly universal.
I would appreciate to know if there is any counter-evidence.
