Object correlative, is when if some one asks for absolute and coke absolute is the object correlative, its when something has become the ‘norm’ i.e. people say they are drinking coke even if it is just a shops own brand cola, other examples are hoover for a vacuum or Celotape just for any sticky tape

Anchorage – all the interpretations in the image the anchorage is the thing that helps you draw the conclusion, it helps the target audience get the correct message

Synicdochal – a synicdocal is where one thing in a whole is use to signify a greater meaning i.e. the eiffel tower is used to represent Paris and it becomes so ingrained in people that it is easy for them to pick up the meanings
