Full Idea

The common feature of every designating term is that designation may change from state to state - thus it can be formalized by a function from states to objects.

Gist of Idea

If terms change their designations in different states, they are functions from states to objects

A Reaction

Specifying the objects sounds OK, but specifying states sounds rather tough.
