A figure of speech in which contradictory terms are combined to form
a phrase is called an oxymoron. The phrase
"terribly nice" is a good example, as is "holy war." Some people think "Army intelligence" is an example.
Try to match up the words in the left-hand column (1 – 11) with the words in the right-hand
column to form 11 oxymorons. Each word will be used once.
