○ 개 요:
This paper mainly deals with a meta-semantics for ordinary names in fiction. It has recently been argued by some philosophers that when ordinary names are used in fictional contexts, they change their semantic contents and work as fictional names in general. In this paper, I argue that there is no compelling reason to believe that such reference changes occur. Applying the causal theory of names to ordinary names used in fictional contexts, I argue that whether those names refer to real or fictional objects depends on which semantic intentions speakers have.
Keywords: reference; fictional names; fictional surrogates; referential intention; the causal theory of names
