I've been reading up on epistemology, after having studied a bit of logic. Given that, I am in a good (or at least better) position to understand a proposition, and it's properties. One such property is that a proposition can be reduced to proposition variables, for e.g, p, q, p and q, if p then q etc.
Anyway, factual propositions, according to the britannica, do not share that particular property, in contrast to logical propositions all of which do. As quoted, ''the semantic and syntactic features of factual propositions make it impossible to reduce them to logical truths''. Yet, propositions are defined as statements with a truth value, separate from all the other statements like 'come here!', 'how are you?', 'am fine', 'space ducks', 'quack' etc.
On a side note, 'factual propositions' seem to be a poor choice of words, since they seem to be quite the opposite, but hey I could be wrong.
