Why is there no set word that means "to tell the truth"? We have a word for telling something that is not truthful, a.k.a. to lie, but why is there no conjugatable term for telling the truth?
In Latin, the word for truth is veritas. In English, we have words like verify, which means to validate the truth of something.
So why not have a word that means to tell the truth instead of saying "tell the truth"?
I'm telling the truth.
