I have entered into a significant **proposition** bet with a friend.

The **proposition** came in a tempting hour.

The true **proposition** cannot be derived because of its popularity.

To every **proposition** in electrostatics there is thus a corresponding one in the hydrokinetic theory of incompressible liquids.

The converse **proposition**, that persons efficiently protected from mosquito bites escape malaria, has been made the subject of several remarkable experiments.

Preparatory work on the franchise **proposition** is under way to facilitate the franchising process.

It is the **proposition**, something predicated about something, that conveys an idea.

"I have had a **proposition** made me concerning you," he said with an unnatural smile.

Last night a **proposition** was made me on your account and, as you know my principles, I refer it to you.

By taking fixed conditions for the hypothesis of such a **proposition** a definite department of mathematics is marked out.

Each **proposition** of the decree is carefully tracked to its probable source, and is often found to modify the latter's meaning.

But it required the arduous labours of the archaeologist to prove a **proposition** that, once proven, seems self-evident.

A further **proposition** often stated with respect to sovereignty is that it is unlimited: a **proposition** which is not true of the legal or political sovereign.

But although mature study has established the truth of this **proposition** it was not always so.

In either case the **proposition** must be ratified by popular vote at the next general election.

I do not accept the general **proposition**.

Why Bedford was not chosen is not stated, but it seems an attractive **proposition**, especially if it is also free!

Another deduction from the same **proposition** is that any corporation or private body which appears to exercise sovereign powers together with the state does so only by delegation.
