New Word II

Heard of this word before but never really knew or remember what's it meant ... until today my Uni flatmate used the word on me ... and a discussion on the word usage followed ... now it's stuck in my head ... can't wait to use this word soon

oxymoron : a figure of speech by which a locution produces an incongruous, seemingly self-contradictory effect, as in “cruel kindness” or “to make haste slowly.”
