How to use "Premiss" in context?
The premiss is the assumption on which an argument is based. It is the first premise of an argument, and is usually the simplest and most basic premise. The premiss may be a fact, a premise of an theorem, or a presupposition of a premise.
A premiss may be either known or unknown, and the validity of an argument depends on the validity of the premisses. If a premiss is known to be false, then the argument is invalid. If a premiss is known to be true, but is not used to support the argument, then it is a premise.
