Propositional function: open sentence E.g. "Something is green", "x is green" - neither true nor false. A propositional function has an argument position (variable) in which an expression can be inserted. Only after inserting we can decide whether the then complete sentence is true or false.

Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them. Instead, they are intended to give a short introduction to the contributions below. – Lexicon of Arguments.
