When I am referring to a number of job applicants, I might say, "I've got a hundred qualified applicants in this folder"; when what I mean is, "I've got RESUMES from a hundred qualified applicants in this folder".
Although most English speakers would understand what I meant, it is not proper English. Is there a name for this grammatical shortcut/faux pas?
Although the Web has powerful search capabilities; unless you KNOW the name of something, it is hard to search for it. I am very grateful for all the StackExchange sites.
