Is there a literary device that uses other words, adjectives, verbs, basically any words to describe another noun, idea, scene, etc. without stating that noun?
In Taylor Swift’s It’s Nice To Have A Friend, she writes
“Church bells ring, carry me home
rice on the ground, looks like snow”
She is clearly describing a wedding, but without actually stating so. You’d have to know about weddings being held in churches, and about the tradition to throw rice at weddings, too.
