Hypallage (ὑπαλλαγή exchange) is a change in the relation of words by which a word, instead of agreeing with the case it logically qualifies, is made to agree grammatically with another case. Hypallage is almost always confined to poetry.

ἐμὰ κήδεα θυ_μοῦ the troubles of my spirit ξ 197, νεῖκος ἀνδρῶν ξύναιμον kindred strife of men for strife of kindred men S. Ant. 794. Here the adjective virtually agrees with the rest of the phrase taken as a compound.
