Subject: Pronounciation of Oxymoron
I heard a newsclip on the radio of Marcia Clark (OJ trial) pronouncing Oxymoron
as AWK-sim-ar-ron. Until then I've always heard and used OX-ee-mor-on (kind of
like the first half of Oxygen followed by moron.).
Since my paperback Webster New World doesn't have it, can anyone tell me which
is the preferred?
