Term:SynecdocheDefinition:Synecdoche is a literary device inwhich a part of something representsthe whole or it may use a whole torepresent a part.Synecdoche is often confused withanother literary device calledmetonymy. Both may resemble eachother to some extent but are not thesame. Synecdoche refers to a whole ofa thing by the name of any one of itsparts. For example, calling a car"wheels" is a synecdoche because apart of a car "wheels" stands for thewhole car. However, in metonymy, theword we use to describe another thingis closely linked to that particularthing, but is not necessarily a part ofit. For example, "crown" that refers topower or authority is a metonymy usedto replace the king or the queen.Term:symbolDefinition:Symbolism is the use of symbols tosignify ideas and qualities by givingthem symbolic meanings that aredifferent from their literal sense.
