The attribute assigned to a proposition in respect of its truth or falsehood, which in classical logic has only two possible values (true or false).
- The examples you gave are both imprecise statements, the first more so than the second, but if you fully qualified them then it could be possible to assign a binary truth value to each.
- It lacks a classical truth value as does the odd sentence ‘The present king of France is bald.’
- For example, the truth value of a proposition symbolized as p & q depends upon the truth-values of p and of q taken separately.
