An $\LL$-theory $T$ is said to have the **witness property** if for every $\LL$-formula $\map \phi v$ with one free variable, there is a constant symbol $c$ in $\LL$ such that:

The term Definition:Logical Formula as used here has been identified as being ambiguous.If you are familiar with this area of mathematics, you may be able to help improve $\mathsf{Pr} \infty \mathsf{fWiki}$ by determining the precise term which is to be used.To discuss this page in more detail, feel free to use the talk page.When this work has been completed, you may remove this instance of `{{Disambiguate}}` from the code.If you would welcome a second opinion as to whether your work is correct, add a call to `{{Proofread}}` the page. |

- $T \models \paren {\exists v \map \phi v} \to \map \phi c$

that is, $\paren {\exists v \map \phi v} \to \map \phi c$ is a semantic consequence of $T$.

That is, every existential statement satisfied by $T$ is witnessed by a constant.
