Truth conditions: the conditions under which statements, propositions, assertions, etc. are true are called truth conditions. In order to understand a sentence, according to some theories, it is sufficient to know its truth conditions. (Compare M. Dummett, Ursprünge der analytischen Philosophie Frankfurt, 1992, p. 20). According to these theories, one can understand not only true but also false sentences. See also semantics, sentence meaning, understanding, truth, meaning.

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.

I 267
Truth Condition/Tugendhat: cannot be explained in turn - only shown.
I 281
Truth conditions/Tugendhat: belong to the meaning because objects are not true/false - truth conditions explain the sentence only if one knows how it is used - lie or deviating use must be avoided.
