The most common and most easily understood definition of metonymy is that of metonymy as the use of a word or phrase, when one refers to something using the name of something else that it is closely related to. Most metonymic senses are widely known and therefore included in a dictionary, but it is not always easy to recognise it from the dictionary entry. This paper focuses on the lexicographic representation of metonymic senses of 13 selected words and the defining vocabulary used in ‘The Big Five’.
