Henry S. Leonard

In this essay I shall be concerned with declarative, interrogative and imperative sentences. What do they mean ? Under what circumstances may they be said to be true, and under what circumstances false? When is their utterance an honest remark and when is it a lie?
Such an enumeration of questions might suggest that I hold other speech forms than the declarative sentence to be classifiable as true or as false. Such indeed is the case. I hope to show why and how interrogatives and imperatives, as well as declaratives, are to be classified as true or false.
