    I added the suggestion that there is a version for HoTT.

    I think it would be nice to add the specialisation of sheaf semantics for any topos of sheafs of sets on a site. In this case we have nice concrete interpretations of the logic. E.g.:

    • it suffices to consider generalized elements of the form x(U)x \in \mathcal{F}(U)
    • any formula is true if it is true on an open cover
    • \implies = implies on all open subsets
    • ¬\neg = false on all open subsets
    • ¬¬\neg\neg = false that (it is false on all open subsets) of all open subsets = true on a dense open subset

    [1] is a beautiful application of this to scheme theory simplifying many statements and proofs.
