Statement (logic)

Written By: Ehsan Jahandarpour

In logic, the term statement is variously understood to mean either: 1.
* a meaningful declarative sentence that is true or false, or 2.
* a proposition. Which is the assertion that is made by (i.e., the meaning of) a true or false declarative sentence. In the latter case, a statement is distinct from a sentence in that a sentence is only one formulation of a statement, whereas there may be many other formulations expressing the same statement.
