Saul A. Kripke on de dicto - Philosophy Dictionary of Arguments

II 209
KripkeVsDonnellan: his theory is correct, but does not refute Russell’s (better, because more consistent) theory - Distinction referential/attributive has nothing to do with distinction de re/de dicto (Donnellan ditto).
---
II 216
Donnellan/Kripke: de dicto: can be neither attributive nor referential: Quote not about object. (already Frege) - Referential: cannot be de re - e.g. "The number of planets is odd": is attributive, i.e. not about this exact subject "whatever" - "necessarily odd": just as attributive - E.g. "The murderer, no matter who, has committed the murder": just as attributive, but de re. - Indirect speech: neither referential nor attributive.
