|Subject:||To say nothing of, not to mention, etc.|
1. Book Title: Three Men in a Boat (To Say Nothing of the Dog)
2. She's overweight, not to mention her high blood pressure.
I know these are idioms of sorts but is there a linguistic term for
these phrases that say something not to be said. Is this sarcasm?
I give up.
I would love an answer.
