john renish puts forward an interesting possibility
with "cleave" - but this is not an oxymoron but a homograph -
a word which an identical spelling to another word which happens
to mean something different - rather like "row" (to paddle, and
an altercation)

good efforts - keep it coming - but we're not there yet!
