Description The present paper sketches the essentials of a proposal which is very Tractarian in its spirit for it exposes some kind of structural isomorphism between (declarative) sentences and (possible) facts (state of affairs). The proposal employs a hyperintensional (procedural) explication of language meanings as suggested by Pavel Tichý. The same logical system is used for explication of facts and possible worlds. Possible worlds are structured, since they contain structured facts.
