In my office bio-data form I added three more points. I requested:
"Please incorporate these points and make these points effective."
"Incorporate" or "subsume"? Which one is correct? I also made a request to make these points effective which will be parts of the bio-data form. Does the last request make any sense? As per New oxford advanced learners dictionary, Incorporate means to include something that it forms a part of something examples [1} many of your suggestions have been incorporated. the new car design incorporates all the latest safety features we have incorporated all the latest safety features into the design.And subsume means to include something in a particular group and not consider it separately exampleall these different ideas can be subsumed under just two broad categories. As per compact oxford dictionary and thesaurus Incorporate means include some thing as part of a whole [ synonyms- absorb,include,blend] But subsume means[usually passive] to include something in a particular group and not consider it separately.But subsume means include or absorb something in something else. example  GST subsumes central excise ,customs and octroi duties.I think In subsume separate identity of what is subsumed is not lost and can be separately shown when required .So my request "please incorporate" was wrong.the request should be"please subsume".
