Wolf II 226
Meaning/to mean/Grice: distinction between what the words of the speaker mean on a certain occasion and what he meant - Kripke: what words mean on a certain occasion is determined on this occasion by these conventions together with the intentions of the speaker and various factors of the context.

Irony/Kripke: does not change the meaning, "a great friend" does not have a "quote-sign meaning", but is determined by the speech act.
Wolf II 237
KripkeVsDonnellan: English is not so ambiguous - E.g. ambiguous language: could confuse "der" and "ter" "der"/Kripke: a corresponding statement is true iff an object is the only one to satisfy it - "ter": here it is crucial what the speaker means - Conclusion: in English there can be a distinction: "ter" is probably rigid: Speaker meaning in all possible worlds: always what the speaker believes - then "Jones said ter man she married is nice to her" is actually not an appropriate representation - therefore Donnellan says that in the referential case it is difficult to speak of "statement" - ("problem of statement").
