Synecdoche | sɪˈnɛkdəki | noun
A figure of speech in which a part is made to represent the whole or vice versa, as in common English expressions that include "suits" (for "businessmen"), "boots" (for "soldiers") and why not, "feather" (for "bird")...
Late Middle English: Via Latin from Greek synekdokhē, from syn- ‘together’ + ekdekhesthai ‘take up’.
