Around the middle of the sixteenth century, the modern use of "something that has really occurred or is the case" dates from. The word truth often implies a matter believed to be valid or correct under debate, such as highlighting an argument or confirming a contested question. Alternatively, reality may also mean an assertion or stipulation of something that may or may not be a true fact (e.g., "the author's facts are not trustworthy"). Alternatively, fact may indicate an accusation or stipulation of something that may or may not be a true fact. While disputed by others, this alternative use has a long tradition in standard English.
