OXYMORNS (విరోధాభాసాలకారం)

Normally, if we want to improve the quality of a word, we use an adjective (i.e., intensifier). E.g. strong man; beautiful house etc. But in English, Oxymoron is a figure of speech, wherein words which have opposite meaning are used in a phrase. Sometimes they're used to make a person stop and think, whether that's to laugh or to wonder.
  Look at the following phrases:
  clearly misunderstood   pretty ugly
  exact estimate              seriously funny 
 small crowd                   fully empty
  act naturally                  only choice
  found missing                original copies cold
  comfort                        the same difference
  cruel kindness              living death
