Inference is just a big word that means a conclusion or judgment.
Inference: Why is this man on the floor? What makes you think so?
An inference is a conclusion you reach by applying logic to the evidence you are given.
Inferring—making inferences—is often described as making a logical guess or "reading between the lines."
Readers make inferences when they are able to
take their own experiences
combine them with information they gather from what they read.
The result is that they
create new meaning or draw a conclusion
that isn't explicitly stated in the reading
Inference: How is this girl feeling?
What makes you think so?
