I know what "truth" means as an attribute of a sentence. But I don't know what "Truth" means? The set of all true sentences...including "This sentence is not in the set of true sentences."?

It is a VERY bad name if someone sincerely wishes to avoid confusion and wants to use language honestly. Never mind what you write here at least be honest with yourself and ask "do I really want to avoid confusion?". Do I really want to use language honestly? If so then it would be better to say "it's true that my dog just took a dump".
