Learn how to say Infers correctly in English with this tutorial pronunciation video.

Oxford dictionary definition of the word infer:

verb
-fers, -ferring, -ferred (when transitive, may take a clause as object)
to conclude (a state of affairs, supposition, etc) by reasoning from evidence; deduce
(transitive) to have or lead to as a necessary or logical consequence; indicate
(transitive) to hint or imply
The use of infer to mean imply is becoming more and more common in both speech and writing. There is nevertheless a useful distinction between the two which many people would be in favour of maintaining. To infer means `to deduce’, and is used in the construction to infer something from something: I inferred from what she said that she had not been well. To imply (sense 1) means `to suggest, to insinuate’ and is normally followed by a clause: are you implying that I was responsible for the mistake?
