Spanish[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Latin assūmere, present active infinitive of assūmō, from ad- + sūmo

Verb[edit]

asumir (first-person singular present asumo, first-person singular preterite asumí, past participle asumido)

  1. (said of a duty or position) to assume, take on

Usage notes[edit]

Frequently mistaken by English speakers to mean "to suppose" or "to take as given", such as in the phrase "I assume that you know this". Asumir does not take this meaning in Spanish. For this usage in Spanish, the verb suponer ("to suppose") is used.
