Lexical Polygamy

I bring this new term again and I hope in future it will be considered as literary device. Lexical Polygamy is the literal absorption of the meaning of a text (claiming the meaning) by not taking into account the contextual significance. For example in the Bible in Psalms it says: ‘I the Lord will give you the nations as a present and the continents as a gift’. What a marvelous verse and I have written it in my purse and I keep reading it every day.
