Abstract:

Textual Metonymy employs a theoretical framework combining rhetoric,
figurative theory and textlinguistics. In the process, a very full
historical account of treatments of metonymy from classical traditions
up to the present time is given and critiqued. The author proposes a
semiotic approach to the treatment of metonymy, on the basis of which
a textual model of metonymy as a process of representation is
developed to account for text cohesion and text coherence.
