... determining the truth of propositions - that is, they have truth values, but we may have a hard time ascertaining the truth value of any given proposition.

And we may have trouble ascertaining exactly which proposition is being asserted, as any lawyer or diplomat will appreciate.  Or scientist, for that matter.  For example, it is a true art form to insult a person with carefully chosen language that, taken literally, asserts a highly complimentary proposition.
