based on insufficiently conclusive evidence; a conjecture. (via dictionary.com) It is the noun form of the verb "surmise
." For some reason
not recognised as a word by "legitimate" dictionaries. Dictionary.com strangely
thinks that the noun form of "surmise" is, again, "surmise", which is just
silly. Potentially first used and thus invented by me.
If one makes
a surmission, said surmission is generally
incorrect, as per the definition of the word.
