Definition

Let $\mathcal L$ be a logical language.

Let $\mathscr M$ be a formal semantics for $\mathcal L$.


A logical formula $\phi$ of $\mathcal L$ is falsifiable for $\mathscr M$ iff:

$\phi$ is not valid in some structure $\mathcal M$ of $\mathscr M$

That is, there exists some structure $\mathcal M$ of $\mathscr M$ such that:

$\mathcal M \not\models_{\mathscr M} \phi$
