    Implicate word

    Hi there,

    I understand the meaning of "implicate" as shows/suggests something, like this example:

    "The results implicate poor hygiene as one cause of the outbreak."

    However, I would like to know if I can use this word in sense "to annoy or nag" someone, something like that:

    "Tom implicates his sister about her cloths". or even "Tom is always implicating his sister about her way to speak"

    Re: Implicate word

    What dictionary definition gave you the idea that "implicate" can mean "annoy/nag"?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
