## Definition

Let $p \land q$ be a **conjunction** of two statements $p$ and $q$.

The statements $p$ and $q$ are known as the **conjuncts**.

## Also known as

**Conjuncts** can also be seen referred to as the **members of the conjunction**.

Sources which refer to a **conjunction** as a **logical product** consequently refer to the **conjuncts** as the **factors (of the logical product)**.
