The Other Oxymoron List

Oxymora gather from across the internet

So you want to know which oxymora didn’t make it to The Best Oxymoron List.  Well, here they are.

Over 5000 candidates were collected from the Internet (in early 2005).  Roughly half were repeats, and these were deleted.  Items with proper nouns (like American Indian, Microsoft Works, British food and California culture) were also deleted because those variations are endless.  About 350 made it to The Best Oxymoron List.  The approximately 2200 remaining entries are shown here.  Some good candidates appear here because they are variations of others found on The Best Oxymoron List (such as, almost exactly vs. almost always, and discover missing vs. turn up missiing vs. find missing).

This list (i.e., not the best oxymora) doesn't includes all of the subjective oxymora, about 400, because they are too base and just too easy (fill in the blanks: _____ food, government _____, ____ husband, etc.)  Hundreds of others here didn’t make The Best Oxymoron List because they push the definition of oxymoron a bit far (like good stuff, antique cars, and lovable loser).  Many are not really oxymora, like calculated risk (you can calculate a risk), brief list (lists are not necessarily long), and friendly advice (advice doesn’t have to be hostile).  Quite a few are feeble attempts to concoct oxymora by linking two words that connote opposite impressions (like arrogant humility, ample shortage, and true gossip).  If you think there are some on this list that ought to be moved to “The Best,” email me about it.
