They covered this mistake rather regularly in English class, but I don’t see it very often in real life. Perhaps the latter is because of the former, eh?
Here are the definitions:
- Imply—to suggest something without saying it explicitly
- Infer—a type of logic when you look at a bunch of examples and detect a pattern
I think this guy means “imply.”
Enough said. Use “infer” and “imply” correctly.
