    simplistically, a metaphor uses something that is not closely associated as a comparison " the leaves square danced across the courtyard".

    A metonymy uses a word that is closely associated with the word. Here the word "turf" is closely associated with horse racing and is used.

    get stars in one's eyes - metaphor or metonymy?why?

  • linguistics - ,

    Are stars and eyes used interchangeably?

  • linguistics - ,

    well no..is this a metaphor then?
    and keep one's eyes peeled?

  • linguistics - ,

    Yes. Keep one's eyes peeled is a metaphor. (We can peel apples, oranges, etc.; thankfully we can't peel eyes.)
