Memahami Oxymoron Yang Susah-susah Gampang

by on

Pernah lihat kata yang kontradiktif berdiri sejajar membentuk suatu frasa?

Hal itu disebut oxymoron. Oxymoron termasuk ke dalam kategori figure of speech dan akan sering kita temui dalam karya sastra. Bahkan oxymoron disebut juga sebagai literary device atau teknik kesusasteraan. Oxymoron bertujuan untuk membuat efek dramatis meskipun kadang tidak masuk akal.

Contoh:

  • My interview was pretty awful yesterday.
  • It’s an open secret, so I assume that everybody already knew.
  • All of them was busy with their cellphones when we were hanging out, so I left because I couldn’t stand the deafening silence.
  • Can you return the original copies?
