Today’s prompt is: Catachresis! My favorite rhetorical trope, catachresis involves using words incorrectly for a particular context (see the subject line), or creating forced metaphors that don’t really work, but that are quite striking.
To give another example, I fully intend to name a dog Catachresis one of these days, so that the dog’s nickname will be, of course, Cat–thus enacting the trope itself.
I’m a nerd, okay? I embrace it. =)
Get in touch with your inner geekery by taking a photo of some sort of catachresis. This will probably be a hard one, so get creative with it! Share on FB and IG! #leapyearphotochallenge
