Would it be right to use 'juxtaposition' in a sentence in which the adjective 'miscellaneous' was used?
In this CD you can find miscellaneous tracks (of various styles).
In this CD you will find a juxtaposition of various tracks.
My interpretation is, though not mentioned in my dictionary, 'juxtaposition' may suggest the collection is a bit odd in which the items are not, perhaps, logically selected, or at least one wouldn't expect such a selection of items.
I would really appreciate any help. Thanks!
Thanks for the reply. Then, regardless of their register, would the two sentences mean the same?
And, is there any informal adjective referring to a bunch of items which, when put together in a collection, would not make sense? (Say, a CD with tracks from classical, blues, and thrash metal?!)
