4.22 An elementary proposition consists of names. It is a concatenation, a linking, of names.

Cf. 2.03.

So can there be such a thing? A proposition that cannot be contradicted, that contains no verb, but somehow asserts the existence of a state of affairs. Something of the form “chair” or “cat, mat” or “red, here, now” or “hard, blue, 5 o’clock”?
