Need help with Synecdoche is a "figure of speech" in which a part is used for a whole, or the reverse. Please help with the following especially with School and Hand. This is what I have so far. Thanks!
1) Jackson has a strong arm: Meaning is, Throws well?
2) Joe has a good eye at the plate:Meaning is,Sees things good at the field?
3) School: Meaning is building of education?
4)Hand: meaning is, Palm, fist or shaker?
I stuck with school and hand. I have no idea how to translation these two.
Read through the examples in the lists here. Let us know what you decide.
Hand: A sailor on a ship, as in All Hands on deck.
School: Meaning to teach, to educate: School your children in the art of politeness.
Remember, the word refers to a part used for the whole, or the reverse.
a good eye: his judgement on the strike zone is excellent.
strong arm: Need more context, but arm is refering to significant part of whole, so in the baseball context, a strong thrower, but in this instance: The producer used his strong arm to sign Lada Gaga to the part.
Now, synecdoche is just not part for whole, it can be place for event, and other things.
Thank you guys so much!!
