Truthfunctions: truthfunctions map truthvalues onto other truthvalues. In twovalued logic, the two available truth values are "true" or "false" (t/f). The disjunction (A or B) now maps (t or t), (t or f) and (f or t) onto t, and (f or f) onto f. Nontruthfunctional semantics differ from truthfunctional semantics in that they also take other meanings of the logical links ("and", "or", "if then") into account, for example, expressions such as "nevertheless," "though," "still", whose propositional content corresponds to the "and", but which bring a certain additional expressive force into play. See also truthfunctional semantics, truthconditional semantics, semantics, propositional content. _____________ Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them.
