Book Review

In chatty style, Blumenfeld, a Georgia State professor, discusses oxymorons, which he defines as "contradictory expressions that make absolute sense." Many of his examples are obvious winners: corporate family, initial deadline, school lunch, and downtown Los Angeles. Some, though, reflect oxymorons of a different variety, such as always occasionally, smile out loud, wildly silent, and Little League. There is also a chapter on geographic oxymorons.
