Oxymoron

An oxymoron uses the combination of two contradictory terms to create a new meaning or effect. This device is often used to create a sense of irony or humor, and to emphasize the contrast between two seemingly opposite concepts. An oxymoron can also be used to convey a deeper meaning or message, and to challenge the reader’s assumptions about the world.

Examples of oxymoron:

“Jumbo shrimp”

“Living dead”

“Deafening silence”

“Open secret”

“Act naturally”
