Consider this quote first please.
For instance, in a sentence “John lost his coat and his temper”, the verb “lost” applies to both noun “coat” and “temper”. Losing a coat and losing temper are logically and grammatically different ideas that are brought together in the above-mentioned sentence.
The quote above is a discussion of the literary device Zeugma
Zeugma, from Greek “yoking” or “bonding”, is a figure of speech in which a word, usually a verb or an adjective, applies to more than one noun, blending together grammatically and logically different ideas.
I understand why the example has logically different ideas, but I do not know how they are grammatically different too.
I could think of losing a coat as a concrete notion while losing temper as a non-literal one. However, I am not sure I do in terms of grammar.
Could it be not dropping the pronoun his in his temper? or dropping the verb lost?
Would adding the verb lost make it grammatical?: John lost his coat and lost his temper.
