Referential/Attributive/SearleVsDonnellan: instead: aspects: you can choose the aspect under which you speak about an object - primary A: if nothing satisfies it, the speaker had nothing in mind (hallucination) - secondary A: any aspect for which it is true that S tried to talk with it about the object, that fulfils its primary A, without being meant to belong to the truth conditions - Champagne example even works if water is in the glass - Searle: then the statement may also be true - the meaning does not change if no other aspect could assume the role of the primary one.
