Fictional Discourse

A Radical Fictionalist Semantics

Stefano Predelli

  • Presents a novel approach to fictional discourse: a Radical Fictionalist Semantics
  • An original combination of themes and methodologies from natural language semantics and narratology
  • Comprehensively deals with the notion of a fictional teller
  • Unites the insight of linguistic and philosophical semantics with the study of fictional language
  • Extends the theory of Radical Fictionalism to critical discourse in the later chapters
  • Minimal formalism--avoids technicalities except where necessary
