In logic and semantics, a statement is generally understood as a meaningful declarative sentence that can be either true or false. It is distinct from a sentence in that there can be multiple formulations expressing the same statement. A proposition, on the other hand, is the idea or notion that a statement expresses, essentially what it represents.
