Caitlin here folks, and it’s time to have fun with English!
synecdoche:when a part of something is used to represent its whole.
ex: “The White House” released its comments on the upcoming Inaugural Address.
Here the “The White House” represents the people inside of it, not the actual White House.
kenning:a compound (of two words, usually hyphenated) using figurative language to create a concrete noun.
