Oxymoron pronunciation

This question is closed for not including research. Is this because the specific dictionaries are not cited?

I think the question is fine, if that is the only problem.

I think it should be reopened.

  • ? You're still a mod, you could have opened it single handedly. In a similar vein, why are so many on-topic questions, from 10 years ago to this recent one, being voted to be closed nowadays?

    @Mari-LouA it is frowned upon for a mod to override a community closed question. Feb 16, 2022 at 6:24
  • Three votes in favour of closing barely constitutes "community" driven; however, a mod is elected by the community. They are trusted to do the right thing (most of the time!) 😊
