|Fiction and Representation|
2019, 160 S, Gb, (Gruyter)
The main claim of the book is that fictional entities have to be defined in terms of units of linguistic representation. The most significant feature of these representational units is that they represent what they do in a non-relational manner. There are reasons to assume that referring expression can become endowed with the feature of non-relationality in fictional texts. This explains why fictions are isolated from the extralinguistic world.
