I posted something about this on the Discussion page some time ago.  I
think that the Suber glossary is very useful.

>From what I recall, (my action item probably wasn't sufficiently clear),
the main point of contention for us had to do with the kinds of things
that have uncertainty values.  Of course, defining 'sentence' is
probably a prerequisite to that, but it's not the final objective.

Dear all,
          I sugest to discuss three items together, namely what is a 
sentence, proposition and statement.
      I sugest to discuss it from several points of view
  - practical examples - general and web specific,
  - definitions: what is a philosophical meaning; what are formal 
models:  mathematical; computer science in web specific formal
      Please allow me to recal that last big discussion has started from

the question what is proposition and/or sentence, I sugested also 
statement and have mentioned RDF example of statement and all this 
discussion has followed
