II. METONYMY (meto = other, nymy = name) -- a figure of speech in which the name of one thing is used in place of another associated with or suggested by it.

III. SYNECDOCHE -- a figure of speech in which a part is used for a whole, an individual for a class, a material for a thing, or the reverse of any of these.
