Little Fixin’, Big Idea

Inference and Argument

Imply v. Infer

To imply is to suggest or hint

To infer is to conclude or deduce



Great, so I have an inference. Now what do I do with it?

An inference becomes an argument!

An argument is a claim supported by evidence!

  • How do I know if I’m making a claim?

    • Someone can disagree with you!

  • The analysis of quotes provides evidence

Not JUST a series of contradictions

You need evidence!
