    According to the adverbial concepon of truth “the words ‘fact’ and ‘true’ in their primary use are inseparable parts of the adverbial phrases… ‘it is a fact that’ and ‘it is true that’ ” (Prior 1969, CJF Williams 1976). "True" is on, this view an operator on sentences, not a predicate, and the paradigmac truth ascripons are of the form "truly P" rather than "it is true that p". I trace some of the origins of this view in contemporary philosophy, including its affinies with the prosentenal, deflaonal and identy theories of truth, evaluate it, and defend a modest version of it.
