- Synecdoche

Synecdoche is a stylistic device. It is the act of referring to an entity by one of its parts. For example, if you refer to your car as your "wheels", you are using synecdoche. "All hands on deck!" is another example. Syndecdoche is closely related to but different from metonymy, where a concept is referred to by something closely associated.
