Analytic Sentence

An analytic sentence is one that is necessarily true as a result of the words in it. For instance "bachelor is unmarried man” is true not because the world is the way it is, but because of the English is the way it is. Based on our English knowledge, the word 'bachelor' means 'unmarried man'. It is not necessary for us to check on the outside world to prove the truth of this sentence. In the other word, the sentence is obligatory true, it is not bounded the condition that follows, based on the relationships between words formed the sentence (Kempson, 1977: 26). In addition, it can be defined that analytic sentence are "true by definition". Analytic truth may be considered as linguistic truth since they are true in virtue of the language itself. Parker in Ahmadin (1998: 17).
