What's the Swedish for "oxymoron" ;)

It's actually (en) oxymoron in Swedish too, although I think the sentence above may be a better example of contradictio in adjecto. ;)
A native Swedish word would be självmotsägelse 'self contradiction', adjective självmotsägande.

En låååååång presentation.

Even the TTS gets it right. :P

He just kept talking in one long incredibly unbroken sentence moving from topic to topic so that no one had the chance to interrupt; it was really quite hypnotic.
