Abstract: 

The expressions of non-existence are discussed in philosophy and linguistics since antiquity in both the West and the East. The main question in this debate pertains to how we can understand such expressions as "Rostam" in Farsi or "Superman" in English, and use them in sentences with different arrangements, while they do not refer to anything in the objective world.
Different philosophers have tried to answer this question in various ways. The author of this article tries to find an answer through semantic means, and to suggest criteria for classifying such expressions.
