Pic(k) of the Week: Synecdoche Steel

Synecdoche Steel

How much is a name worth?

A steel factory (and a railroad line) in Scottdale, Georgia, USA, on 12 July 2020.
Steel, LLC was founded in 1947. It is a steel fabricator providing structural steel, miscellaneous metals, ornamental metals, erection, and services for the construction of suburban mid-rise office buildings, corporate campuses, aviation/aerospace structures, and steel trusses.

And it has that synecdoche.

  • A synecdoche (pronounced si-nek-duh-kee) is a figure of speech which allows a part to stand for a whole or for a whole to stand for a part. When using synecdoche, you refer to your car as your “wheels” and a handful of quarters, dimes, and pennies as the “change” needed to pay the meter. The word synecdoche is derived from the Greek phrases synekdochē and ekdechesthai, meaning “to sense” and “to understand.”
