Marchnata Technegol gyda'r Oxymoron

HamletYn ystod yr ysgol uwchradd (a nawr), roeddwn i'n eithaf clown y dosbarth.

I had quite a theatrical English teacher one year – his name was Mr. Morgan. Most of my time with Mr. Morgan was spent outside the classroom because I couldn't appreciate Shakespeare. It drove Mr. Morgan crazy.

Ar un achlysur pan ofynnodd Mr Morgan, yn ei acen Yale-ish swanclyd, pa fathau o dechnegau llenyddol a ddefnyddiodd Shakespeare yn Hamlet, codais fy llaw yn bryderus.

Ochneidiodd Mr. Morgan, “Ie, Mr Karr?”
“Oxymorons”, atebais.
“Oxymorons?” drôn Mr Morgan, “Ydych chi hyd yn oed yn gwybod beth yw ocsymoron, Mr Karr?”
“Sure!” I said, “It's the juxtaposition of antithetical terms in an expression, Mr. Morgan.”

Though I was correct, Mr. Morgan still couldn't grow to appreciate my sense of humor and he showed me the door. It did get quite a laugh from the class (after the initial gasp of hearing multi-syllable words coming from my mouth).

I've never forgotten the definition for an oxymoron… and I'm surprised at their excessive and, perhaps, growing usage when marketing technology today. If you want to sound like you have a really cool product or service, throw in an oxymoron into your marketing or technology presentation. It appears folks love it nowadays. In fact, quite a few of these are now in Geekipedia.

  1. Datblygiad Hyblyg - Mae'r datblygwyr hynny'n ddoniol. Mae'r rhyddhau yn dal yn hwyr.
  2. Rhyngwyneb Rhaglennu Cais - fel petai'r rhaglen ymgeisio ei hun.
  3. Cudd-wybodaeth Artiffisial – it's not artificial, it's real.
  4. Dewisiadau Amgen Ynni - yr unig ddewis arall yn lle ynni yw mater tywyll.
  5. URL cyfeillgar – what's a mean URL?
  6. Rhyngrwyd Radio – if it's on the Internet, it's not radio
  7. Gliniadur $ 100 - egni? Mynediad i'r Rhyngrwyd?
  8. Niwtraliaeth net - unrhyw un erioed yn clywed amdano Akamai or S3?
  9. Rhyngwyneb Defnyddiwr – it's still for the computer, not me.
  10. Chwilia Beiriant Marchnata – it's not marketing (sorry), it's placement.
  11. Integreiddio Di-dor – if it's integrated, it means there is a seam somewhere.
