Usage notes[edit]

Sometimes, the English verb to assume, when the sense is "to suppose it is true", is erroneously translated into Portuguese as assumir. Verbs carrying the correct sense according to the context include presumir and supor. The verb's meaning has been affected by the erroneous translation, and it is, sometimes, used with the meaning of "supor" and "presumir".
