Abstract

Against standard descriptivist and referentialist semantics for fictional reports, I will defend a view according
to which fictional names do not refer yet they can be distinguished from one another by virtue of their different name-using practices. The logical structures of sentences containing fictional names inherit these distinctions. Different interpretations follow.
