Arabic authors define metonymy as the use of word in figurative sense, which is based on associations. Dealing with metonymy in Arabic stylistics is very much restricted by its referral character. By discussing the concept of metonymy Arabic authors derived that metonymy is teleology controlled trop. Within the framework of dealing with metonymy in Arabic stylistics relationships which are characteristic for synecdoche are noticeable, while synecdoche itself does not separate as trop.
