Selectional Restriction Violation

“The frog says it can jump high and far.”

“The chair replies it feels comfortable sitting in this room.”

“The tree sings it’s way to freedom.”

Does the above sentences make sense? Not logically.

They are language aim at communicating with the subconscious mind. The subconscious knows that the things, animal and tree do not talk or sing. It does know that the statement carries a meaning aim directed at the listener.
