Definition
to form a theory (a belief about how something works or came about — often without having absolute proof)
  • It has been theorized (especially by William G. Throneberry and Julia Givens, Berkeley) that resurgence of the TK ability at this point was caused by both psychological factors (i. e., the reaction of the other girls and Carrie herself to their first menstrual period) and physiological factors (i. e., the advent of puberty).
