logical connective

A **logical connective** is an function (possibly of several variables) between propositions or the like. The term ‘connective’ is used in mathematical logic because ‘function’ and ‘operator’ are often features of what the logic describes. So ‘connective’ refers to a feature of the metalanguage, while ‘function’ or ‘operator’ usually refer to features of the object language.
