Sažetak
The paper uses two small-scale studies to examine the effects of metonymy in political discourse. We re-examine some theoretical constructs proposed as definitional of metonymy, particularly pragmatic function (Barcelona, 2003a) and inclusion of the source and target in the same functional domain (ibid.). By analysing a dysphemism chickenhawk as an instantiation of the metaphoric mapping HUMANS ARE ANIMALS and the metonymic mapping PART OF A SCENARIO FOR THE WHOLE SCENARIO in the euphemism body count we delineate the possibilities and limitations of metonymic inferencing (Panther & Thornburg 2003). The observed differences in the pragmatic effect of euphemistic and dysphemistic expressions ascribed to metonymy reveal its differing foregrounding and backgrounding force.
