    Greetings

    Please, how may I translate this short sentence?

    A paradox is an apparent contradiction.
    (I.e. only a seeming contradiction, not a true one.)

    Every blessing,

    Το παράδοξο / Η παραδοξολογία είναι φαινομενική (μόνο) αντίφαση.

    I might lay some stress on "apparent" by adding "only" (μόνο).

    Greek
    παραδοξολογία refers to a verbal paradox and sometimes to an obviously "illogical" statement.

    Thanks, Sotos. I didn't take the time to explain the difference, but I thought it should be included, seeing we didn't have any context.
