[I regret that quoting a dubious internet source from an ex-colony that has managed to boldly* mangle the English language, grammar and spelling does not prove anything. Claymore is of an age and education where he should know the difference and I expect is abjectly ashamed of his error.
I stand corrected. It would seem it's a common mistake and myself and Claymore have made it.
From the Oxford English
"There is a distinction in meaning between infer and imply. In the sentence the speaker implied that the General had been a traitor, implied means that the speaker subtly suggested that this man was a traitor (though nothing so explicit was actually stated). However, in we inferred from his words that the General had been a traitor, inferred means that something in the speaker’s words enabled the listeners to deduce that the man was a traitor. The two words infer and imply can describe the same event, but from different angles. Use of infer to mean imply, as in are you inferring that I’m a liar? (instead of are you implying that I’m a liar?), is an extremely common error.
I thought a 'comms' man would know. One is TD the other is RD . Back to basics.
