Oxymoron

Standard

An oxymoron is a figure of speech in which contradictory terms appear side by side. I have captured an oxymoron in this photo!  I have every confidence that one day I’ll take a photo of a bike, rather than a car, beside this bike rack.  I will then have captured a tautology….

Grammar can be exciting!

  1. I have to confess, I had to look up “tautology” to see what it means. I guess it means a phrase or expression in which the same thing is said twice in different words. But when the information started talking about Greek, Math, Science and references to C. S. Lewis, and Gotlieb Frege and others, I got completely lost. Thank you for an excellent adventure.

    • It is so easy to get lost in grammar! I confess that I had to look it up, too!! We’re all familiar with oxymoron – maybe we experience it more in our daily lives. Who knows….?
