Infer or Imply?

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.
