The aim of this paper is to consider a possibility of understanding assertibility as a semantic concept. This leads to a nonstandard view of the relation and borderline between semantics and pragmatics. For the language of classical propositional logic entailment will be defined as a relation which preserves assertibility rather than truth and it will be shown that this enables us to model some linguistic phenomena in an adequate way.
