Argument

An Argument is a group of statements, one of which (the conclusion) is claimed to follow from the premise(s).

Arguments may be placed in one of two categories: those in which the conclusion really does follow from the premise(s) (good argument), and those in which the conclusion does not, even though it is claimed to (bad argument).

An inference is the reasoning process used to produce an argument.

A proposition is the meaning of information content of a statement.

Just a little elementary logic in case we need to argue.
