I've read in a children's magazine, and it has a title of a story called, The Real Fairy Tales. I feel that there is something not right with that sentence. And recently I asked my teacher, she said it was a grammatical term in english. Please if you can, find out what that grammatical term is.
Are you asking about "The Real Fairy Tales"?Originally Posted by Unregistered
"The Real Fairy" sounds like an oxymoron...it's a rhetorical figure of speech. Something like a "friendly argument" or a "medium large coffee", "deafening silence"etc. These are terms that contradict each other. Fairy is anything but real.
