The main lines of research so far have investigated different types of metonymies
, their relation to the compound constituents and to the overall meaning of the compound, and their interaction with conceptual metaphors.
He does this in part because his new adjusted toolbox defines each rhetorical figure not as the narrow trope (for example, of kinaya) identified by the Classical Arabic critic, but rather as an expanded field that includes a scope envisaged for French poetry by Moreau (metonymie
b) Target-in-source metonymies
are those in which the target is a subdomain of the source, for example the metonymies
based on Kovecses and Radden's part-for-part relationship and those based on other frames like the product and the location frames (1998), e.g.
The original denotative meaning of IMF as a monetary organization lost its meaning to other myths that were created through metonymies

My efforts to depict the way in which O'Brien represents the experience of extreme events in terms of the loss of the paradigmatic dimension of language, for example, run alongside Saul Friedlander's remarks on the use of 'minute incidents' in accounts of the Holocaust to convey 'the excess that cannot yet be put into phrases'. O'Brien's metonymies
