    Is this correct?

    Could anyone please tell me if this is correct:

    That is, how can one define the opposite of ‘something’ if that ‘something’is not defined either?

    Thank you very much.

    "How can one define the opposite of ‘something’ if that ‘something’is not defined either?" This is OK, but it would be better as "How can one define the opposite of someting one doesn't have a definition for?"
