The online dictionary, freedictionary.com, gives several definitions of the verb, conceive.
- To become pregnant with
- To form or develop in the mind
- To apprehend mentally; understand
- To be of the opinion that; think
- To begin or originate in a specific way
I am interested in the second definition. Next, I am going to use it in a sentence:
It took me at least thirty minutes to conceive a good thesis statement for my essay.
Is it correct to say conceive a thesis statement?
