Statement (logic)

In logic a statement is either (a) a meaningful declarative sentence that is either true or false, or (b) that which a true or false declarative sentence asserts. 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. Philosopher of language, Peter Strawson advocated the use of the term “statement” in sense (b) in preference to proposition.
