    Figures of speech say one thing in terms of something else, such as when an overeager funeral director is described as a vulture. Meyer says that although “figures of speech are indirect, they are designed to clarify, not obscure, our understanding of what they describe”. For example: Literal: “The dinner strongly expressed anger at the waiter”.

    In metonymy… the literal term for one thing is applied to another with which it has become closely associated because of a recurrent relationship in common experience.
