We can use sentences to present arguments, some of which are valid. This suggests that premises and conclusions, like sentences, have structure. This in turn raises questions about how logical structure is related to grammar, and how grammatical structure is related to thought and truth.

Keywords: logical form; sentences; arguments; logical structure; grammatical structure; thought; truth
