"we are using one entity to refer to another that is related to it. This is a case of what we will call metonymy." (#60 660)
"Metaphor and metonymy are different kinds of processes. Metaphor is principally a way of conceiving of one thing in terms of another, and its primary function is understanding. Metonymy, on the other hand, has primarily a referential function, that is, it allows us to use one entity to stand for another. But metonymy is not merely a referential device. It also serves the function of providing understanding." (#60 676)
"like metaphors, m├ętonymie concepts structure not just our language but our thoughts, attitudes, and actions." (#60 750)
"In fact, the grounding of m├ętonymie concepts is in general more obvious than is the case with metaphoric concepts, since it usually involves direct physical or causal associations. The part for whole metonymy, for example, emerges from our experiences with the way parts in general are related to wholes. producer for product is based on the causal (and typically physical) relationship between a producer and his product, the place for the event is grounded in our experience with the physical location of events. And so on." (#60 751)
