Þessi háttr má snúaz svá, at gǫrr hlutr setiz fyrir efni sínu sem mjǫl fyrir korni, ok er sú hin fimta grein metanomíe sem Þjóðólfr kvað:
94. Lét hrætrana hveiti
hrynja gramr ór brynju
vill at vexti belli
valbygg Haraldr Yggjar.
Hér er hveiti sett fyrir korni.
This is the fifth type of metonymia, which may be explained by saying that the product is substituted for ths (raw) material, as (for example) ''meal" for "grain," as Þjóðólfr said: [...] Here ''wheat" is written instead of "grain."
