"Caesar crossed the Rubicon." "Zombies eat brains." Language permits us to make a claim about someone who lived in the distant past or entities that don't exist. How does language enable us to convey thoughts about non-existent things or people with whom we have had no contact? This paper will explore that question, as well as serve as an introduction to perennial philosophical issues of language and communication.
