This chapter sketches a new answer to the question of what holds the constituents of propositions together, which leads to an account of what propositions are. It is argued that if the following are true: that (i) there is an account of propositions according to which there is no mystery as to what they are; (ii) there is good reason to think they exist; and (iii) the account sheds light on the central feature of propositions (i.e., that they represent how the world is), then we should adopt that account of propositions.
