entering, please

Careful writers don't use input and output as verbs--if only because people can't decide how to spell (and pronounce) declined forms.

Decades ago, I was a sociolinguist.

neutral  Timothy Takemoto: I have seen this question a few times and assumed that kimeuchi meant "entering." I am a dull boy. All the same, there are 100,000 hits for "inputting" on google.

  -> You obviously missed my "careful". The world is full of sloppy writers using it's for its, etc., but the English-speaking (North American English) companies that pay my bill specify type/enter instead of inputting/keyboarding.

I think that it means assume, make an assumption, make a guess. But looking at the way it is used, it seems to mean the first/safe guess, or default.

It is used to translated "assume" and "assumption" in the page given in the reference.
