Giving and Receiving

Giving and Receiving
Do you know the difference between ‘imply’ and ‘infer’? Misusing ‘imply’ is a common practice. According to Fowler’s, “Each word has its own job to do, one at the giving end and the other at the receiving (What do you imply by that remark? What am I to infer from that remark?) and should be left to do it without interference.”
