Title: Textual Metonymy
Subtitle: A Semiotic Approach
Written By: Abdul GabbarMohamedAl-Sharafi
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/Catalogue.aspx?is=1-4039-1332-3
Description:

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.
