    Smile I figured/presumed/assumed/thought

    I figured/presumed/assumed/thought/reckoned/supposed John would be mad at Susan after she told on him.



    Do all of the underlined words mean pretty much the same? Thanks.

    Re: I figured/presumed/assumed/thought

    Yes. They are just a matter of formality and location. Assumed is usually the most formal while reckoned is the least (unless you live in the southern United States). Whenver I am confused about words' meanings, I look them up at flowing - Definitions from Dictionary.com.
