“Supposably” is a word, but there’s a 99% chance you don’t know how to use it.

“Supposably” is a word, but there’s a 99% chance you don’t know how to use it.

Supposedly: According to what people believe or assume

Supposably: Capable of being conceived

It’s helpful to use each word in a sentence to understand the difference:

Supposedly , I should receive my tax refund within the next fifteen days.

I could supposably receive my tax refund tomorrow, but it’s a little unlikely since I only filed my taxes yesterday.

Tip: In order to avoid confusion, or if you’re uncertain about which word you should use, try using the word conceivably instead of supposably.

Your writing, at its best.
