Um oxímoro é uma espécie de contradição de termos, sendo descrita na Wikipedia como uma figura de linguagem que harmoniza 2 conceitos opostos numa só expressão, formando assim um terceiro conceito que dependerá da interpretação do leitor. Como por exemplo:

  • inocente culpa
  • lúcida loucura
  • silêncio eloquente
  • gelo fervente
  • declaração tácita
  • ilustre desconhecido
  • luz escura
  • mortos-vivos
  • parque industrial (eu sei: já nem reparamos!)
  • crescimento negativo
  • orçamento ilimitado
