Suppose

Suppose yang sedang kita diskusikan sekarang bukan suppose yang berarti “mengira” melainkan suppose yang artinya “Andaikan/Seandainya. Fungsinya sama dengan apa yang kita pelajari dalam topik Conditional. Silahkan ikuti penjelasan di bawah ini:

* I suppose you’ll be meeting Danielle when you go to Paris?
* When you weren’t there, I supposed you must have been held up.
* I suppose you two know each other?

‘suppose’ tidak umum digunakan dalam bentuk Continuous. Kita tidak boleh mengucapkan ‘I am supposing’.

* Now I suppose we’ll have to do something else.
* We’re waiting for John and I suppose he must be stuck in traffic.
* At this moment I suppose it doesn’t matter

Ketika kita merespon sebuah pendapat dengan ‘suppose’, kita dapat menambahnya dengan ‘so’ untuk menghindari pengulangan apa yang sudah diucapkan sebelumnya.

* Is Susan coming to this meeting? – I suppose so.

‘Supposed to be’ artinya ‘Katanya/Dipercaya’.

* The new James Bond movie is supposed to be excellent.
* He is supposed to have been rude to Mark but I don’t believe it.
* It is supposed to be the best restaurant in town.

‘Supposed to be’ dapat juga digunakan untuk berbicara tentang sesuatu yang sudah disusun atau diharapkan. Artinya sama dengan ‘should’ (seharusnya).

* I’m supposed to get to work by 8.
* John is supposed to turn off all the lights when he leaves.
* I’m supposed to pay my rent on the first of the month.

‘Suppose’ dapat juga digunakan sebagai Conjunction yang artinya ‘Bagaimana Jika’.

* Suppose we take the earlier train to Munich? It would give us more time there. – Suppose we took the plane instead? That would give us even more time.
* There’s nobody in reception to let our visitors in. – Suppose I sit there until somebody comes?
* I’m going to ask him for a pay increase. – Suppose he said ‘no’? What would you do?
