English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. suppose

    To suppose is temporarily to assume a thing as true, either with the expectation of finding it so or for the purpose of ascertaining what would follow if it were so. To suppose is also to think a thing to be true while aware or conceding that the belief does not rest upon any sure ground, and may not accord with fact; or yet again, to suppose is to imply as true or involved as a necessary inference; as, design supposes the existence of a designer. To conjecture is to put together the nearest available materials for a provisional opinion, always with some expectation of finding the facts to be as conjectured. To imagine is to form a mental image of something as existing, tho its actual existence may be unknown, or even impossible. To think, in this application, is to hold as the result of thought what is admitted not to be matter of exact or certain knowledge; as, I do not know, but I think this to be the fact: a more conclusive statement than would be made by the use of conjecture or suppose. Compare DOUBT; HYPOTHESIS.

    Synonyms:
    conjecture, deem, guess, imagine, surmise, think

    Antonyms:
    ascertain, be sure, conclude, discover, know, prove

How to use suppose in a sentence?

    If you scramble, you could get it done, I suppose, but to pull that off you really have a challenge, i think there would be a lot of people who would stand by their commitment and stay with Hillary. It would be a challenge for Joe.

    We heard about it in the news. The terrorist organizations blame every assassination on Israel - we're used to that, the man was no saint and he didn't deal with improving infrastructure in Gaza - he was involved in improving rockets' accuracy ... We constantly see a settling of accounts between various factions in the terrorist organizations and I suppose that is what happened in this case.

    Are you suppose to wear swimming trunks when you are in the car pool lane?
