Although the oxymoron is part of stylistic devices group and has a history which is no less prolific compared to the other devices of this group, it has been marginalized, even ignored by lexicologists and the ones dealing with stylistics. The lexicographers mistook it with the antithesis or with the paradox, considering the former as an artificial construction where the notions are opposed within an expressive contradiction. Still we have insist that the oxymoron always involves two terms (white crow, seeing blind/ blind seer, sad smile), while the paradox involves ideas (two at least) that seem antagonistic. The paradox as a stylistic device has been used by philosophers, all possible schools of thought and movements at all times, yet the oxymoron would emerge later as a result of stylistic and artistic researches. The materials that we would like to present to the philological audience, showcases the disclosure of the mechanism related to the oxymoron “bang”. We are going to attempt to prove that the secret of the aforementioned stylistic device is a matter of lexical and semantic synthesis of two contradictory terms and having as a result either a semantic “masterpiece” or a brutal antinomy, often unjustified by the functional style it is part of. We also think of compiling a mini-glossary of oxymorons in the future.
