Topics in the Semantics of Names and Discourse proposes to apply the analytical framework of possible world semantics to the specification of the semantic properties of such natural language phenomena as common names (i.e., common nouns), proper names, fictional names, fictional discourse and free indirect discourse. Even though these have formed the object of inquiry of many studies, there is still dispute among scholars with regard to how they function semantically and, implicitly, what their nature is. The book proposes to visit controversial aspects of this kind and to advance appropriate interpretations. It is addressed to linguists, logicians, philosophers, discourse analysts and literary theorists.
