    Re: impliedly or implicitly

    'Impliedly' is not a word.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    — Arthur Schopenhauer

    Thank you.
    Note my corrections above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I understand from your reply that I shall not use this "whatever it is" anywhere.

    Re: impliedly or implicitly

    You should not write impliedly. Your readers will not understand it.

    Re: impliedly or implicitly

    I searched Google and found the followings which shows "impliedly" is a word.

    Expressly Or Explicitly &Amp; Impliedly Or Implicitly


    ForumsGrammar & Sentence Structure

    What's the difference between (1) "expressly" & "explicitly" and (2) "impliedly" & "implicitly"?

    Thank you so much.

    Well for a start there is no such word as impliedly.
    17th December 2005



    From Reuters on 2006-1-17:

    "It is difficult to defend the attorney general's declaration that the statute impliedly criminalizes physician-assisted suicide," Justice Anthony Kennedy said for the court majority.

    The online dictionary defines '"impleidly" thus:
    Im·pli·ed·ly
    adv.
    By implication or inference. Bp. Montagu.



    So obviously impliedly is a word but I have never seen it before. However, a search on A9 turns up many references that appear to be legal documents or arguments. It appears to be a legal term. Google fight has over 18 million references to "implicitly" and only 500,000 references to "impliedly."

    Re: impliedly or implicitly

    If it's a legal term, you will learn its meaning when you study law. Otherwise, there's no point in asking ordinary people who have not even heard of it.

    Re: impliedly or implicitly

    I didn't know, and still I am not sure it can be used only in legal terms.

    Re: impliedly or implicitly

    It sure as heck is not used in the everyday language of most native speakers.

    Re: impliedly or implicitly

    That's why lawyers charge so much: they use words the rest of us don't understand.
