I’ve decided to add a new category to my website, entitled Oxymorons.
I love these little contradictory phrases, so in my search to find the best oxymorons, I will be posting them to my blog!
It is defined as:
A rhetorical figure in which incongruous or contradictory terms are combined, as in a deafening silence and a mournful optimist.
Let’s get started:
- Old news – this is a classic example.
- Stiff drink – this has received mixed opinions, but I am certain it is an oxymoron.
- Dry ice – what prompted me to add this post.
If anyone has any decent oxymorons, get them posted in the comments!
