Discrete Mathematics and Graph Theory
Proof Let the truth value of -P A ->Q be T. By the definition of conjunction, the truth
values of -P and ->Q are T. Again, by the definition of negation, the truth values of
P and Q are F. Using the definition of disjunction, the truth value of PV Q is F.

On the other hand propositions are not born with a truth value: this one is
assigned, if at all, once the proposition has been formulated. There are
propositions that have not yet been assigned a truth value, e.g. because we have
been unable to ...

The crucial step was the identification of a sentence's truth-value with its meaning
. Frege argued, convincingly, that the meaning of a sentence cannot be held to
be the thought that the sentence expresses (and thus not the proposition, ...

Similarly, let the truth value of S(SP V SQ) be F. By the definition of negation, the
truth value of (SP V SQ) is T. Again, by the definition of disjunction, the truth value
of at least one of SP and SQ is T. Using the definition of negation, the truth ...

Mathematical Methods in Linguistics
Each complex wff also receives a truth value, which is determined by (1) the truth
values of its syntactic component statements, and (2) the syntactic structure of the
complex wff; i.e., its connectives and their arrangement in the formula.

Existence, Truth, and Probability
Hence a wff of QC is true in a model of cardinality p (p > 0) if and only if true on a
truth-value assignment of that cardinality ( = Theorem 10); and hence a wff of QC
has a finite model if and only if it is finitely tv-verifiable ( = Theorem 11). Turning ...

Methods of Logic
In Chapter 2 a compound was said to be a truth function of its components when
its truth value is determined by those of the components; and it was observed that
conjunction and negation constitute an adequate notation for truth functions.
