The word "implication" can appear in a number of forms, these being "imply", "implicate", "implicated", "implicates", "implication", and "implications".
The word "implication" can be used to refer to a number of things. Firstly, it can be used to describe the consequence or result of a previous event or action. For example, if the president gave a speech which was unpopular with the crowd, then a political "implication" would be that he or she might lose the next election. Therefore, "implications" is simply the plural of this, referring to more than one consequence or result. This is perhaps the most common way to use the word "implication", although there are a number of other ways which are also commonly used in written and spoken language.

The word "implication" can also be used to refer to the act of a person suggesting or hinting towards something, without actually explicitly stating it. In this sense, the word "implication" might appear in the following sentence: "John's implication of his hatred for Joe was surprising to all of us". In this sentence, it would appear that John felt hatred towards Joe, but did not actually say it. The people around John would be able to understand from his words, tone of voice and body language that John disliked Joe, without him having to say so.

Rooting from the word "imply", the form of "implicate" can be used in order to suggest another's' involvement or role in a particular action, and is especially common when referring to a crime. For example the word "implicate" could appear in the following sentence: "John has been implicated in Joe's murder". The form of "implicative" can be used in a similar way, and would appear in a sentence such as this: "the evidence is implicative of John's involvement in Joe's murder".

An implication refers to the action of implicating someone, or the state of one being implicated. An implication refers to something that is implied, which means something that suggests or indicates something through indirect means. For example, 'His behaviour implied that he was upset with me". It may also refer to something that is not said, but signifies something. An implication can also be something that is inferred or interpreted. It simply means something that is not freely expressed, but can be inferred.

An implication is also used to describe an accusation which involves connections of a very personal and incriminating nature.

In the area of logic, an implication is a relating factor that stands between two propositions when they are connected as the precursor and subsequent of a true conditional proposition.

The word is used as a noun and the meaning you can figure out from the use of the word is that of the possible effect of an action or a decision. As we all know that unless a word is being used in context, it is not possible to discern its meaning, given bellow is a sentence that can help you understand the word quite well: The development of this building site will have serious implication on the ecology of the surroundings.

Sometimes the word is also being be used for the fact of being involve somebody into a crime. When you are using the word in this context, you should add the term 'somebody' with it to indicate which person involved in the action.
