[catalogued under 3. Truth / C. Correspondence Truth / 2. Correspondence to Facts]

Full Idea

The proposition that 'L is happy or hungry' can be made true by the fact that L is happy. This does not have the same complexity or constituent structure as the proposition it makes true.

Gist of Idea

What makes a disjunction true is simpler than the disjunctive fact it names
