George Orwell's 1984

Even though the words aren't exactly opposite, would the Ministries of Peace, Love, and Plenty be oxymorons? If not, what would they be?

Posted by Anonymous on Sun, 08/24/2014 - 22:37
1984

The ministry of Peace is involved with war. The ministry of Plenty is involved with starvation. The ministry of Truth is involved with falsehoods, and the ministry of Love
is involved with torture. These jobs are assigned this way for the protection of the government.

An Oxymoron I made

I made up this oxymoron. :)

" I am an anorexic who suffers from bulimia."

Not possible because if you are anorexic you would be starving yourself; a bulimic binge eats. You cant eat and starve yourself at the same time.

Paradox

I think that that is more of a Paradox.

NOT ONLY 2 WORDS

it doesnt just have to be 2 words it could be a phrase or phrases e.g. "I can resist anything, except temptation." - Oscar Wilde

hope this helped

Posted by Anonymous on Sat, 06/28/2014 - 17:56
YES ONLY 2 WORDS

a contradictory STATEMENT would be a paradox

Ooh,ohh I know!

EAR PIERCING SILENCE
PRETTY UGLY
SHALLOW OCEAN
BIG BABY
Broken tool(?)
YOUNG ADULT

Posted by Anonymous on Mon, 06/09/2014 - 02:53
Big baby

I don't think big baby is one because not all baby's are tiny they can be big for a baby. Broken tool probably isn't one either. I'm not sure about young adult...

Posted by Anonymous on Wed, 07/02/2014 - 17:43
wrong!!!!

big baby and broken tool are oxymorons. a baby is never "big" compared to other things that are big but makes sense in context and a broken tool is also an oxymoron because tools fix things and are not meant to break things. those are oxymorons because they are words that contradict one another but make sense after put in context.

Posted by Anonymous on Mon, 08/25/2014 - 06:20
Nope...

Big baby would absolutely not be considered an oxymoron because it is referring to the size of a baby as a baby, not in comparison to the rest of the world. It's a simple qualifier. There can be small, average, and big babies.
