Oxymorons

Post by Stardust on 16/5/2017, 18:02

12 Sep 2008, 12:04

An oxymoron is a figure of speech in which opposite or contradictory ideas or terms are combined, such as:

Thunderous silence

Just wondered how many we could think of between us. I can add:

Pretty ugly
Exact estimate

That's all I can think of at the moment but they are quite common. I love it when someone on the radio comes out with one and doesn't realize what they've actually said.  very happy

No. I'm afraid that isn't one. Oxymoron must contain only 2 words:- an adjective and a noun or an adverb and an adjective
eg--open secret or eg--idly busy etc.  very happy

Working holiday.
Invisible ink.

Only the 2nd one is Oxymoron, Stardust. Ice DOES burn---literally.
The last one would have had to be something like " invisible view" etc which doesn't make sense.  Smile

Good old Feather - I knew you'd correct the wrong ones.
I know dry ice can burn badly because it sticks to the skin if anyone dares touch it. I did that when I was about 11 but can't remember how I managed to get unstuck - I expect my Dad came to the rescue.
I've been trying to come up with more oxymorons but it's not as easy as I first thought.
I'm not sure I understand why 'invisible ink' is wrong but never mind, I'll have to live with it.
Can you think of any more?

I was hoping you wouldn't ask me that, sammi. Don't remember any more offhand.
I'll have a think.I could be wrong about "invisible ink" but I think it would fall into the
same category as "unsung hero" which I do know is not accepted as Oxymoron.

Only choice

Google "Oxymoron examples" There are stacks of them there including "hot ice".

The light's come on. I can see why 'invisible ink' isn't an oxymoron now. Mr. Green
