Propositions II, 128ff
Statement/Proposition/Discourse/Foucault: There is no general, independent, neutral statement.
Proposition: An alphabet, construction rules or transformation rules of a formal system are required. Then one can define the first proposition of this language completely, but not the statement. There is no statement that requires no others. No first statement.

Statement: is that which places the units of meaning in a space in which they multiply.

Statement: must have material existence. Also time and space. Problems: Does each repetition form a new statement? Translation? Identity?
