The term proposition (from the word ""proposal"") refers to both (a) the ""content"" or ""meaning"" of a meaningful declarative sentence or (b) the pattern of symbols, marks, or sounds that make up a meaningful declarative sentence. The meaning of a proposition includes that it has the quality or property of being either true or false, and as such propositions are called truthbearers. The existence of propositions in the abstract sense, as well as the existence of ""meanings"", is disputed by some philosophers.
