    How to use "Discongruity" in context?

    There is a wide spectrum of expressions that convey disbelief, shock, or outright confusion. These expressions are dubbed "Discongruity." However, while there appears to be a plethora of these expressions, the actual number may be quite small- particularly in the English language. There is not a precise definition of discongruity, but it generally connotes a jarring contrast in appearance, meaning, or sound.
