While being corrected for my incomplete understanding of the question of truth I was offered the following.
With regard to Right Speech, the Pali analysis gives it four levels of ascending depth.
First, Right Speech is factually accurate.
second, it is affectionate.
Third, it is helpful.
Fourth and deepest, it creates concord. A silence which creates concord would be a deep level of Right Speech.
