Word of the day synecdoche
by Christine Lovatt
"In a way, our study of one cross-section of the city represented a synecdoche, taking a small part of London as a whole."
A synecdoche is a figure of speech meaning a word used to represent a whole. For instance, the headline "England won by six wickets" uses England to mean 'the English cricket team'. It comes from the Greek syn 'together' and ekdoche 'interpretation'.
