My name is Alan Rutkowski. I graduated from the University of Colorado in 1966 with an MA in Russian and from the University of Denver in 1970 with an MA in Library Science. I worked as a Slavic Librarian at the University of Alberta from 1971 to 1999. After taking early retirement in 1999, I taught communications courses in the Business Program at NAIT. Twice a year I teach a grammar and writing workshop at the University of Alberta, Faculty of Extension. I also do freelance editing. I have published numerous articles and Op-Ed pieces in the Globe and Mail and for three and a half years wrote a weekly grammar column for the Edmonton Journal. I currently live in Victoria, BC.

Could you give examples of when to use ‘presume’ and when to use ‘assume’.
To assume is to suppose something to be the case without proof.
I assume Donald Trump secretly wants the Democrats to win.
To presume is suppose something is the case based on a probability.
I presume most Republican supporters of Donald Trump have IQs roughly equivalent to their hat sizes.
I used your picture of Trump as a clown in a post on Google+ https://goo.gl/6gDB2O
It’s not actually my picture. I just took it off Google images.
