wotw #42 conjecture

The word, conjecture, can be used as either a noun or a verb.

In noun form, it is an inference or a conclusion formed on incomplete information. When used as a verb, it is the act of forming an opinion about something or someone, also on the basis of incomplete information.

Example sentences:

  1. The conjectures made about the new CEO are many and varied.
  2. Sometimes, in Science, you have to make a conjecture and then later go back to verify and prove it.
  3. There were strange sounds outside my door so I conjectured someone was trying to break in.
