A Conversation for Contradictions in Terms
naiveskeptic Started conversation Aug 26, 2010
"gourmet pizza" is a good example of an expression which could be called a contradiction in terms. Many people would agree (although others would demur) that within the notion of "pizza" there is an element of "non-gourmet-ness" which makes the use of gourmet as an adjective contradictory.
Most of the examples that appear in the list do not meet my criteria.
