Truth Value

Pronunciation: /truθ ˈvæl yu/ ?

In classical logic, the truth value of a claim, statement or equation is true or false. The truth value of a claim may be unknown. This means that it is not known if the statement is true or false.

In other logics, the truth value of a statement can have other values. The term truth value has the same meaning as logical value.
