Abstract

This volume includes author’s paradoxist experiments in linguistics from a literary point of view. One devises various methods that deviate and alter the classical form of some linguistic expressions.

Eleven linguistic categories are presented (Murphy’s laws, the clichés, homonyms, tautologies, proverbs, metagrams, translations, definitions, figures of paradoxism, monorhymes, and abbreviations), which afterwards are respectively turned into their corresponding Florentin’s laws, clichés, homonyms, etc. and exemplified.
