|Implicature, philosophy of language: Implicature is an expression by H. P. Grice on prerequisites within a communication, which are accepted tacitly by the participants and which can be noticed in the formulation of a single sentence, e.g. through an ironic formulation. (See Paul Grice, Studies in the Way of Words, Harvard 1989, pp. 22-40.)|

E.g. "Here you are right", Implicature: "Otherwise you are mostly wrong". ((s) Especially linguistically conditioned).
On the other hand:
Conventional Implicature/Jackson: E.g. "She votes for liberal, but she is no idiot" - that implies: "Most liberals are idiots". This is not about linguistic peculiarities, but about conventions.
