Suppose to or supposed to - Mixed messages and misused words from A to Z
Somebody stop me! I simply cannot stand it when someone substitutes suppose to for supposed to. It’s simply sacrilege, as far as good writing is concerned.
Correctly used, supposed to points to something occurring the way folks generally suppose it is mean to occur. It may even include a sense of obligation or responsibility.
This is how it is supposed to go.
I suppose, to state things correctly, I am supposed to include an appropriate example of this phrase here. Perhaps readers may suppose I just did.
