Oxymoron: "A rhetorical figure in which incongruous or contradictory terms are combined, as in a deafening silence and a mournful optimist." How are you supposed to wake up dead? It makes no sense, cannot happen, thus since it contradicts itself, is an oxymoron.

True, because you cannot wake up once you are dead. But, you can wake up, then die immediately... think about it.

Yes. It is quite debatable.

Goodhart (author)Whaleman2008-01-04

I just meant that if it is true, it is true, but partially true makes it not wholly true, and therefore not true.....a kind of oxymoron ;-)

There might be, but i am unaware of what it would be called. Oxymorons are like: Tight Slacks. they seem to contradict each other.

i love an oxymoron. In ireland we have a tendancy to a strange turn of phrase. It seems that we use english using the gramattical rules of gaelic. So we tend to say things like "There was my bike, against the wall, gone!" Literally translated to irish it is perfect gramatically.

Oh you should hear the local Amish (called Pennsylvania Dutch, although they speak broken English, mixed with German, using German grammar); it is "wonderful gut !" An example: Throw Papa down the stairs his hat.

Today in history, in 1967 Donald Campbell died in an attempt to break the speed record on water. French existentialist writer Albert Camus died in a car accident. I have the news paper opened to that section. Its next to the crossword Im filling out. 22 across, 6 letters - ?s?y?s, clue - Idolises the commercial on metal containers.
