Good morning and happy Friday, everyone!

This week, we have learned some often-confused words. We are completing this theme with IMPLY vs. INFER

Definition of IMPLY: Strongly suggest the truth (but not state the truth directly). 

Example 1: She said she was tired, which implied she wanted to leave the party. 

Example 2: He laughed at my accent. Does that imply that he thinks my French is bad?

Example 3: The director implied that we would all get a bonus at the end of the year.  

Definition of INFER: To make an opinion or come to a conclusion using evidence and reasoning (without having the information presented directly through statements). 

Example 4: I saw your car in the driveway and your lights were on, so I inferred that you were home. 

Example 5: I can infer from the one-star ratings that this movie is very bad.

That's it for this week!  We will see you on Monday for a week about Halloween vocabulary.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
