Product Description
Synecdoche are words or phrases that name only a part of a whole to represent the entirety of the concept or subject. A common example is the word "crown" used to represent the king or monarch or even the entire nation. Synecdoche can also operate in the other direction referring to the whole when only part is intended in the meaning. Synecdoche require context to function correctly and to make sense.

The concept of synecdoche helps students understand contextual meaning and ordering general and specific concepts. Some analysis and critical thinking are required to identify and understand synecdoche, so a student's reading skills are refined as a result of this exercise.
