Angry Language Guy

I was in a meeting yesterday. I heard someone claim twice that we were inferring something in our communication to our business partners. When I present information to you, I imply; you infer. That is all.

I'm the same way about that word! I usually tell people: "The speaker implies; the listener infers." (note usage of the semi-colon!)

Wow! You're equally anal-retentive. We both win!
