Hi,

I wonder if "inspire" sounds ok in the following sentence.
The basic assumption behind word categorization was inspired from the studies conducted on word association.

Is there any other correction needed?

Thanks!

    Hi cigone,

    "inspire" doesn't sound quite right to my ear.

    How about, "The basic assumption behind word categorization was derived from studies conducted on word association."

    What do our other English speakers think?
