(as part of its Departmental Colloquium series)
by
Lee Walters (University of Southampton)
on
Fictional Names

Tuesday, 20 October 2015, 5.30 PM, Zrinyi 14, Room 412

ABSTRACT

Our discourse about fiction seems to pull us different directions. On the one hand, Sherlock Holmes does not exist, on the other he was created by Conan Doyle. I argue that the best approach is to admit that fictional names are ambiguous having both a referring and non-referring use. I motivate and defend this proposal by looking at other cases of metonymic transfer.
