Aristotle - The Organon - index for DE INTERPRETATIONE Book 1 Part 4

Sentences and propositions

  
Paragraph 1 A sentence is a significant portion of speech, some parts of which have an independent meaning, that is to say, as an utterance, though not as the expression of any positive judgement.
Paragraph 2 Every sentence has meaning, not as being the natural means by which a physical faculty is realized, but, as we have said, by convention.
Paragraph 3 Let us therefore dismiss all other types of sentence but the proposition, for this last concerns our present inquiry, whereas the investigation of the others belongs rather to the study of rhetoric or of poetry.
