Supposition

Supposition

Pronounced:
<sup-o-sish-shun>

My use:
I really like your supposition. But I think you’re wrong about the moon being made out of cheese.


Means:
Imagining as true what is not true. Belief without good evidence.  Poor.


Literary use:
By Tillotson
This is only an infallibility upon supposition that if a thing be true, it is imposible to be false.

Memory trick:
suppos . it . ion

suppos (reminds of) = suppose
it (reminds of) it
ion (sounds like) un or not
suppose it un


Listen: Supposition
