  1. Premisesnoun

    Etymology: præmissa, Lat. premisses, Fr [

    They infer upon the premises, that as great difference as commodiously may be, there should be in all outward ceremonies between the people of God, and them which are not his people. Richard Hooker, b. iv. s. 7.

    This is so regular an inference, that whilst the premises stand firm, it is impossible to shake the conclusion. Decay of Piety.

    She study’d well the point, and found
    Her foes conclusions were not sound,
    From premises erroneous brought,
    And therefore the deduction’s nought. Jonathan Swift, Miscel.

Webster Dictionary

  1. Premises

    of Premise

Freebase

  1. Premises

    Premises are land and buildings together considered as a property. This usage arose from property owners finding the word in their title deeds, where it originally correctly meant "the aforementioned; what this document is about", from Latin prae-missus = "placed before". In this sense, the word is always used in the plural, but singular in construction. Note that a single house or a single other piece of property is "premises", not a "premise", although the word "premises" is plural in form; e.g. "The equipment is located on the customer's premises", never "The equipment is located on the customer's premise".
