From Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day service:
catachresis \kat-uh-KREE-sis\ nounAnd here's an example from an opinion column in a local newspaper:
*1 : use of the wrong word for the context
2 : use of a forced and especially paradoxical figure of speech
The paper printed a correction for the previous day's catachresis: dubbing a local artist-philanthropist a "socialist" when they meant "socialite."
