Dear Friends,

Could anyone please help me with this:

Which is better here:

1)resolving this contradiction
2)the resolving of this contradiction

The weather is rainy but I say "The weather is good".

Resolving this contradiction/The resolving of this contradiction gives rise to an ironic effect.

Thank you!

'of the undertanding' would be better?

but the thing here is not 'in order to' understand metonymy but how metonymy is understood by the listener: what happens in the brain when metonymy is understood.

Dear Friends,

Could anyone please tell me if this sentence is too convoluted or not:

In this essay I will relate metonymic explanatory models to empirical findings (on metonymy) from neurology, psychology and psycholinguistics.

Is 'on metonomy' in parentheses necessary?

Thank you!

Dear Friends,

Could anyone please tell me if 'for' is okay here:

In this essay I wish to propose a processing framework for the understanding of metonymy.

Thank you!

Dear Friends,

What else could you use instead of 'new' in an academic essay in:

I propose a new theory.

('revolutionary' would be too strong, I think)

Thank you!
