Oxgenation and oxidation are not interchangeable terms.
Oxygenation is the adding or dissolving of oxgen.
Oxidation is the chemical reaction of oxygen (or other source of the
element) with other molecules.
Oxygenation prior to fermentation is good.
Oxidation is never good. Ever.
Oxidation by oxygen (gas) is related to temperature (higher temp = more
oxidation). Oxidation of wort produces cardboardy flavours.
