We allude to a matter slightly, perhaps by a word or phrase, as it were in byplay; we advert to it when we turn from our path to treat it; we refer to it by any clear utterance that distinctly turns the mind or attention to it; as, marginal figures refer to a parallel passage; we mention a thing by explicit word, as by naming it. The speaker adverted to the recent disturbances and the remissness of certain public officers; tho he mentioned no name, it was easy to see to whom he alluded. One may hint at a thing in a friendly way, but what is insinuated is always unfavorable, generally both hostile and cowardly. One may indicate his wishes, intimate his plans, imply his opinion, signify his will, suggest a course of action. Compare SUGGESTION.

How to use indicate in a sentence?

  1. Jonathan Penn:

    Narang said. Other tips to keep in mind are keeping software and security patches up to date, using strong passwords, creating a different password for every website, and using two-factor authentication when possible, according to Narang. And, of course, never give out any personal information via email, social media platforms, text messages or instant messages, Narang said. Users should also enable your email provider’s spam/phishing filters and clicking on unknown links is a bad idea. Don’t even click on links, even from family or friends, if the email lacks any context or truly personal message that [would] indicate it’s real.

  2. State Police:

    Preliminary reports indicate several pedestrians with injuries, varying severity.

  3. John Bolton:

    What they've said was that they're not going to test ballistic missiles, intercontinental range ballistic missiles, or have nuclear tests. That's continued. They're doing a lot of other things that still indicate that they have not made a strategic decision to give up the pursuit of deliverable weapons, which is why we continue the maximum pressure campaign.

  4. Jeff Silber:

    I don’t want to pull the fire alarm here, but those numbers indicate that we’re not moving in the right direction.

  5. Jorge Guajardo:
