suppose的详细讲解：
词语用法

suppose后可加that引导的从句，且句中that可省略。
I suppose (that) he is about forty.
我猜他大概四十岁。 
suppose和supposing在句子中常表示一样的意思。但suppose在句子开头属于祈使语气，而supposing是现在分词，且美国人比较少用supposing；
Suppose he is absent, what shall we do?
Supposing he is absent, what shall we do?
假设他缺席了，我们要怎么办？ 
suppose有时指“建议”。
Suppose you come to my house tomorrow morning, and I will show you all my books.
我建议你明天早晨来我加，我会把我所有的书都展示给你看。
 suppose的基本意思是指在证据不全、情况未确定时所作的猜想。可指缺乏确切的事实但可根据一些现象来推测; 也可指提出合乎逻辑推理的假设来论证某事; 还可指委婉地提出建议。
 suppose是及物动词,可接名词、代词或that/wh从句(可用于虚拟式)作宾语。还可接以“(to be+) n./adj. / prep. phrase”或动词不定式、现在分词充当补足语的复合宾语。suppose搭用to be构成的复合宾语,如用于被动结构, to be有时可以省去。
 suppose作“作为建议来考虑”解时,常用于祈使句,用以提出建议,可译为“…如何〔怎么样〕?”。与“what if”用法相似,动词一般用现在时或过去时。用过去时时,所提建议听起来不十分肯定。
 suppose作“准许”解时,常用于被动结构或否定结构,后接动词不定式。
 suppose在主句中用过去时时,如宾语从句中的谓语动词所表示的动作先于suppose,则该动词须用过去完成时。
 suppose在表示过去未曾实现的意图、打算或愿望时须用过去完成时。
 suppose引导否定意义的宾语从句时,须使用转移否定结构。
 suppose是表示思想状态的动词,通常不用于进行体。
 在构成反意疑问句时,如果陈述部分是主从复合句, suppose用作主句谓语动词,则疑问部分应同从句的主谓语一致。
 为避免重复, suppose后可用so/not来替代前面的句子或句子成分。
 用作连词,表示提出某种假设或提出某种建议,作“如果”解, suppose和supposing可以通用; 作“即使”或“认为”解,则只能用supposing,不能用suppose。例如:Supposing〔Suppose〕 he can't come, who will do the work?如果他不能前来,谁来做这项工作呢?Suppose we put it off till tomorrow?咱们推迟到明天做怎么样?Supposing you miss him, he is not likely to miss you.即使你碰不到他,他可能会碰到你。
词义辨析
 suppose, assume, presume

这组词都近于汉语的“假定”或“猜想”。其区别是：assume含有比较强烈的武断成分,往往意味着把一件尚未证实或尚存在意见分歧的事作为自己论断的基础。presume表示以过去经验作根据或者是合乎逻辑地推测,一般是有充分的理由,虽然结论仍可能是错误的。suppose意义比较广泛不定,有时仅用于陈述自己的意见,等于“想”,有时表示有一定的根据的“猜想”,没有上面两个词所强调的意味。
 suppose, guess, imagine

这三者均可表示“猜想”。其区别是：imagine指没有事实根据,仅凭主观想象进行猜想; guess指未经认真思索而进行猜想,有时指不着边际地瞎猜; suppose指依据某些事实进行探索性的推测。例如:I guess you've already known the answer.我想你已经知道答案了。I suppose he is late again.我想他又迟到了。
常见错误
 我猜我把书落在图书馆里了。
误 I supposed to have left my book in the library.
正 I supposed that I have left my book in the library.
析 suppose后不能直接跟动词不定式。
 “You won't be here tomorrow, will you?”“I suppose not.”
误 “你明天不来这儿,是吗?”“我不这样想。”
正 “你明天不来这儿,是吗?”“我认为是这样。”
析 答句全句意为I don't suppose I will be here tomorrow,故应如正句所译。
词源解说
 ☆ 15世纪初期进入英语，直接源自古法语的supposer，意为假设；最初源自古典拉丁语的supponere： sub(向下）+ponee(r放），意为放在下面。
