might want to look up "synechdoche." what you mean is that they became synonymous.


Hey Andy! I know it's a slightly unusual use of the word, but what I had meant was that yellow (as a part of the pulp covers) had come to signify the greater mystery associated with it on an even larger scale; not that the words were synonymous but that the color itself had become a part of the representation of mystery and crime.


No, I got that, I just don't think that "yellow" is a natural part of "mystery," and therefore it's simply not synchdoche, as it is when you call the physical novels themselves "giallos." You are right that synonymous isn't quite it--I would say simply that they are linked. But I defer to the author.


Very enticing, Network Awesome, thanks.
