    What's your context, Lazy Bear? It can be used as a synonym to opinion if you're speaking about setting forth some argument or a point of view. Say, in the forums

    Re: synonymum of opinion?

    Hello there ..
    statement means :
    1. expression in words : the expression in spoken or written words of something such as a fact, intention, or policy, or an instance of this
    a statement of intent

    2. something said: something that somebody says that is not a question or an exclamation and that expresses an idea or facts in definite terms
    eg .. We were unable to verify the truth of that statement .
    and opinion means :
    personal view: the view somebody takes about an issue, especially when it is based solely on personal judgment .
    eg . In my opinion it's all a waste of time.
    so I think opinions can be express through statments.

    I hope that help
    and I am waiting our teachers opinions in this forum
    about the differences between them .
