“Paradox, an oxymoron.” A paradox is usually composed of a group of statements while oxymoron usually is written of two contradictory terms. A mystery is often a true statement, but it may lead to an unexpected event. An example of an oxymoron is the word bittersweet. These are two words that are different, but they are placed together to form a completely different word.

This means that the person experiencing this emotion or situation may feel sad and happy at the same time. Another example of an oxymoron is darkly lit. This may refer to a room that has a light but is dark so the items that are inside the room will still be unclear.
