While searching for a definition of 'insinuate' and its examples in context, I have stumbled upon the following sentence (Definition of insinuate from the Cambridge Advanced Learner's Dictionary & Thesaurus © Cambridge University Press):
An absolute is a verb that can not be measured because it is a lack of a behavior insinuating an end state
Thomson, M. (2012, June 12). PsyWar of Words. TIME. https://nation.time.com/2012/06/12/psywar-of-words/
According to COBUILD Advanced English Dictionary, if you say that:
- someone insinuates that something bad is the case, you mean that they say it in an indirect way
- someone insinuates themselves into a particular situation, you mean that they manage very clearly, and perhaps dishonestly, to get into that situation
But the use of 'insinuating' in the sentence mentioned earlier doesn't make sense to me (frankly, the whole sentence either).
