Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

Premises: premises are assumptions within logical conclusions. From them follows a conclusion. Premises are written in a separate line. This makes them different from implications written in one line that contain an antecedent with one or more conditions and a post-sentence. See also syllogisms.
