    Is it possible for there to be an empty bottle of water?

    Like, by containing water, is a bottle defined as such even after the water is all gone?

    You could ask the same thing about a soda, is it a bottle of soda because it's gone?

    It's a strange one this, I still refer to it as an empty bottle of water, whereas there isn't any water and should be defined as an empty water bottle.

    but what if it's not a water bottle?

    Like say you filled a pepsi bottle with water, then drank it all.

    Then it's just a used, empty bottle.

    What about the label though, if the label says water, would it not be an empty bottle of water.

    It was once a bottle of water, now it's just an empty bottle.

    If I use a bottle for holding water, I'll call it a water bottle. If it's empty, then it's an empty water bottle.

    It's a bottle full of air now. Perri Air, when the outside air just isn't enough.

    I'd never really thought about it but I suppose the sentance "An empty bottle of water" is technically incorrect. It can only be an "empty bottle", you could say "an empty bottle that used to contain water" though.
