True £1, truth £2

OK then, true =A31, and truth =A32.

I was interested in John's explanation as I have never really heard a
decent refutation of the idea that denying that there is truth involves a
performative contradiction.

Although I found John's post interesting and helpful I am still left with
the question of, what then does true =A31 mean?

Does it mean reasonable to say?

Does it mean useful to say in the circumstances?

Does it mean persuasive?

or what?
