Statement: once a statement is made the utterer is committed to it. In contrast to this, a sentence can be thought of as a string of symbols that is no statement.

Statements Quine: "any statement may be revised".
Fodor IV 44ff
Statement/semantic holism/Fodor/LeporeVsQuine: Quine consistently avoids to say what a statement is. - A formula or a proposition or something that relates to the semantic value. - a) if they are formulas (morpho-syntactical), one and the same statement have different meanings. - Formulas come true in a different way in confirmations than sentences. - It is pointless to ask whether one form confirms the other. - Confirmation depends on the meanings - Identifying statements with forms (formulas) contradicts the Quine-Duhem-Thesis - it would not be substantial.
