Supposedly vs. Supposably

on good terms

On a friendly footing, as in I'm on good terms with the manager, so I'll ask him to help you . Shakespeare used the phrase slightly differently in King Lear (1:2): “Parted you in good terms?” The precise current usage was first recorded in 1669. Also see on speaking terms
