## What is propositional logic of any language?

Propositional logic is the logical language of propositions. We are going to use PL as our metalanguage to describe English (the object language)—in particular, the meaning of English sentences. We are going to use PL because it is unambiguous and fully determined. As a language, PL has both a syntax and a semantics.

**What is propositional language?**

A propositional language L = (A, F) is called a language with propositional constants, when we distinguish certain constants, like symbol of truth (T) or falsehood (F), or other symbols as elements of the alphabet. The propositional constants are zero-argument connectives.

### What are the rules of propositional logic?

The propositions are equal or logically equivalent if they always have the same truth value. That is, p and q are logically equivalent if p is true whenever q is true, and vice versa, and if p is false whenever q is false, and vice versa. If p and q are logically equivalent, we write p = q.

**What is a proposition give a few examples and explain why each is a proposition?**

A proposition is a statement that makes a claim (either an assertion or a denial). It may be either true or false, and it must have the structure of a complete sentence. “I did not take the pencil” (complete sentence that makes a denial) “the sun is shining” (complete sentence that makes an assertion)

#### What is a propositional logic explain in your own words and give examples to illustrate?

Definition: A proposition is a statement that can be either true or false; it must be one or the other, and it cannot be both. EXAMPLES. The following are propositions: – the reactor is on; – the wing-flaps are up; – John Major is prime minister.

**What is the difference between proposition and propositional logic?**

A quantified predicate is a proposition , that is, when you assign values to a predicate with variables it can be made a proposition….Difference between Propositional Logic and Predicate Logic.

Propositional Logic | Predicate Logic | |
---|---|---|

3 | A proposition has a specific truth value, either true or false. | A predicate’s truth value depends on the variables’ value. |

## What is the difference between a sentence and a proposition?

The key distinction is that sentences are the things people say and that occur in normal languages whereas propositions are things that are either true or false.

**How do you identify if it is a proposition or not?**

This kind of sentences are called propositions. If a proposition is true, then we say it has a truth value of “true”; if a proposition is false, its truth value is “false”. For example, “Grass is green”, and “2 + 5 = 5” are propositions. The first proposition has the truth value of “true” and the second “false”.

### What makes it simple simple proposition?

Simple propositions are declarative sentences which do not contain a connective. The restriction to declarative sentences is important. In propositional logic each proposition, simple or complex, must be capable of being either true or false.

**What is simple proposition?**

Simple propositions are declarative sentences which do not contain a connective. The restriction to declarative sentences is important. In propositional logic each proposition, simple or complex, must be capable of being either true or false. So we won’t count questions or commands, for example, as simple propositions.

#### What is proposition explain its types with an example?

A proposition is a declarative sentence which is either true or false but not both. Also a proposition cannot be neither true nor false. A proposition is always expressed with the help of a sentence. For example – the same proposition “It is raining” can be expressed in English, Hindi, and Sanskrit and so on.

**What is proposition in semantics?**

Definition of proposition (David Crystal): The unit of meaning which constitutes the subject matter of a state, and which is asserted to be true or false. It takes the form of a simple declarative sentence.

## How do you explain the relation between sentence and proposition?

While sentence is a grammatical entity, a unit of language that expresses a complete thought; a sentence may express a proposition, but is distinct from the proposition it may be used to express: categories, declarative sentences, exclamatory, imperative and interrogative sentences.
