Thread Name: BS: Omitted noun figure of speech
Subject: BS: Omitted noun figure of speech
The \Greeks have a word for everything, it's said. I'm sure there is a word for an adjective with its noun omitted, as in "I haven't the foggiest [idea]" or "A word in your shell-like [ear]", but I can't find it. Anyone?
