Truth is an adjective not a noun.

The subtle difference between truth as semantic axioms and truth as an asymptotic correspondence resolves the above.

The ability to test a statement against a criteria (correspondence, coherence , utility, meaning or any combination thereof) makes “true” possible (the only time “true” us relevant) – thus “true” exists as a property of speech and thought (not a prooerty of the world or reality).
