Putative (adjective) = putativo, suposto, alegado
Pronunciation: ['pyu-tê-tiv]
Definition: Commonly supposed; assumed without conclusive grounds for belief.
Usage: The only other derivational relative today's word has is the adverb "putatively." "Putative" is nearly synonymous with "reputed" but carries a strong connotation of untruth much more like "supposed."
Suggested Usage: Today's word suggests itself when any sort of reputation is at issue: "His putative expertise in car repair evaporated quickly in the heat of an actual motor under the hood of my car." The reputation does not have to be a human one, "My dog is the putative father of their dog's puppies..."
Em um "paternity case", o pai putativo (the putative father).
