A statement of religious doctrine; an article of faith; creed; as, the propositions of Wyclif and Huss.
A complete sentence, or part of a sentence consisting of a subject and predicate united by a copula; a thought expressed or propounded in language; a from of speech in which a predicate is affirmed or denied of a subject; as, snow is white.
A statement in terms of a truth to be demonstrated, or of an operation to be performed.
That which is offered or affirmed as the subject of the discourse; anything stated or affirmed for discussion or illustration.
The meaning of a sentence that makes a claim, that is, a sentence that can either be true or false. For example, "The current president is bald" expresses a proposition, but not "Is the current president bald?" or "Shave the current president's head!" because the first sentence can either be true or false, but not the latter two. A proposition is identified with the meaning of a sentence, and not the sentence itself, since the same claim or proposition can be expressed in two different sentences, such as "It is raining" and "Il pleut." In philosophical terminology "proposition" and "statement" are often used interchangably.
A statement that is either true or false with no ambiguity. For example, the proposition "I just tipped a bucket of burning oil into your lap," is either true or false, but there's no ambiguity about it.
A statement, such as valve-is-broken or tank-is-overflowing, that is either true or false.

In Livingstone, a Proposition is an element of a Clause. It is an equality predicate that is partitioned into Positive Propositions and Negative Propositions. Same Propositions can be expressed as Positive Proposition s and Different Propositions can be expressed as Negative Proposition s. A Clause may Support a Proposition.
Closely allied to proposal both etymologically and in practical daily use. Widely divorced from this and greatly confused in its current appearances in the logics. Many efforts in the last two decades to distinguish it clearly from assertion, statement, sentence, and other words of this type upon the basis of the older self-oriented logics, have only served to increase the difficulties. Sufficient light is thrown upon its status by its demand, concealed or open, that its component terms be independent fixities while at the same time it hypostatizes itself into an ultimate fixity. Treated in Dewey's Logic, the Theory of Inquiry under radically different construction as an intermediate and instrumental stage in inquiry.
An expression in language of something that is either true or false. Also, the actual state of affairs so expressed. The same proposition can be expressed by different linguistic forms. Conversely, the same linguistic form can express different propositions. Examples: Same meaning, different form: Aliens have abducted Eleanor. Eleanor has been abducted by aliens. Same form, different meaning: We last saw Eleanor an hour ago (spoken on December 11, 2000 at 3 p.m. vs. on January 14, 2002 at 5 a.m.).

A sentence or component of a sentence that asserts something, the predicate, about somebody (or something), the subject. All sentences can be broken into propositions.
