In this video at 05:20, Christopher Hitchens corrects his use of "imply" to "assert." Just found it interesting.

@Dominic, see my question to JustinC below: Does an implication always have to be implied, as you state here?

comment “Implied” is to “explicit” as “implication” is to what?
Does an implication always have to be implied? It seems that both an inference and an implication can be arrived at by an audience without the speaker implying anything. In that sense, inference and implication are interchangeable. I think these considerations can give clarity to what it is that I am trying to ask here! What do you think?

Thanks, Fuhrmanator. I think this most captures the concept I am trying to convey, which is the "expressed" nature of a statement. oxforddictionaries.com/definition/english/declaration demonstrates this in its definition of declaration.

+1 I like assertion, Dominic. I'd give the answer to you, but 'declaration' works equally well, and I've voted. Thank you!

@SF, it is redundant to make a point. See the definition of declaration here: oxforddictionaries.com/definition/english/declaration. I think 'statement' is close, but see my question for my issues with it.

comment “Implied” is to “explicit” as “implication” is to what?
You are correct. When I posted, I was hoping someone would offer a noun I had not thought of. I think 'state' functions well as an antonym for 'imply' in the sense that I am looking for, but 'statement' doesn't fit the analogy to the degree that I want it to.

I see your point. Perhaps the question should be "Implied is to explicit as implication is to _____"
