MÉTONYMIE_ (/mɛˈtɒnəmi/)A fancy French word for metonymy.As humans, we are unable to comprehend the unbounded, all-encompassing image of things in their entirety. It is, therefore, extremely common to take one well-understood or easy-to-perceive element of something and use it to represent that thing as a whole, or another aspect of it.

This mental process uses metonymies and it is one of the most effective mechanisms to trigger image change, in a natural, organic way.

Icons, initials, brand names, nicknames, stereotypes, paragons, part-for-the-whole images, place-for-the events names, product-for-producer pictures, absent-but-known or part-whole relations, domain expansions and domain reductions, category relations: these are all different types of metonymies. And metonymies are not only part of the visual or written realm; they can also be sounds, tastes and scents.
