Abstract: In this article, the author gives an account of the operation and functions of the onomastic synecdoche, a trope employed by Somali poets, in which the literal sense base consists of proper names given by Somali herders to domestic animals, especially camels.

In questo articolo, l'autore dà conto del funzionamento e delle funzioni della sineddoche onomastica, una figura retorica usata dai poeti somali, in cui il senso letterale consiste in nomi propri dati dai pastori somali ai propri animali domestici, in particolare ai cammelli.
