Oxymorons

My friend has a sister that said, "I'm so humble! I'm the most humble person in the world!!!!!!" Then my friend goes, "And you're a walking oxymoron." Then her sister goes, "MOM! She called me a MORON!!"
So funny... ^^

oxymoron?????

is "im ready to suffer and im ready to hope" one?

Are These Good Examples of Oxymorons, by Any Chance?

"Sickly sweet"
"Hellish paradise"
"Honorable treachery"
"Blinding darkness"
"Successful failures"
"Failed successes"

Also, can an oxymoron ever take place as a complete sentence with proper subject-verb correlations? Thus far I have only observed oxymorons as purely adjectives, or adjectives followed by a related noun, i.e. "bittersweet" and "deafening silence" respectively.

It seems like a good oxymoron

It seems like a good oxymoron gets away with using ambiguous language to create extra meaning.

Posted by Anonymous on Sat, 02/18/2017 - 20:34
No, not really

Though, I suppose you could argue that it is because typically, you would imagine a farewell to be good-natured. I think a better example would be welcoming farewell.

Small crowd, deep pockets.

Oxymoron

I think small crowd would be an oxymoron as 'crowd' generally refers to a large group of people. However, I'm not certain about deep pockets.

help please

silent corpses?

Posted by Anonymous on Mon, 08/29/2016 - 05:45
technically, no

an oxymoron is two opposites used side by side to describe the same thing. like "jumbo shrimp" or "little value"

"The Sound of Silence"

Is "The Sound of Silence" an oxymoron? It is my favorite song btw. Team Redefining Dance (A.K.A Nyle and Peta- pro dancer and deaf male model) danced to it on DWTS this season. They were awesome!

Is "it filled her dear heart full of joy" an oxymoron

Posted by Anonymous on Fri, 03/11/2016 - 18:34
No

You need a word to contradict joy. The term 'dear heart' doesn't contradict joy because that simply means courageous, admired as loveable or loyal. Maybe something along the lines of 'It filled her heart with miserable joy'.

No

"Loud silence" is an oxymoron. The point is to have two words that are opposite in meaning from each other with one being used to describe/modify the other.

Posted by Anonymous on Tue, 05/03/2016 - 17:12
YEP

YES it does

Posted by Anonymous on Mon, 04/18/2016 - 12:58
yes

it is, because silence 'clamours' are the two contrary subjects you used together
