What’s up with “allegedly,” “apparently,” and “supposedly”?

theyuniversity:

Hallo, und danke. (^-^*)/

So far, so good?

Lastly, if you hear that something is supposedly (believed or reputed to be the case) going to happen, it may or may not occur. ”Supposedly” is close in meaning to “purportedly.” 

When we add supposedly to a sentence, it means we aren’t sure. For instance, if a fan site tweets that a singer is supposedly dating a certain TV personality, it isn’t official: it might just be gossip or speculation.

And when at last you find someone to whom you feel you can pour out your soul, you stop in shock at the words you utter— they are so rusty, so ugly, so meaningless and feeble from being kept in the small cramped dark inside you so long.

Be Careful with your Words. They are Powerful !!

Use them for good.
