SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

inkling (noun) hint; a slight indication.

When you have an inkling of what is happening or what is going to happen, you see a hint or indication of it. If you had no inkling, for example, that a person was planning an escape, you had no idea or no indication that they were going to do it. If you have no inkling of someone trying to harm you, you do not have the slightest idea about it. There has been no hint to you of their doing it.

  • If the father had the slightest inkling of his daughter’s plans to elope with her boy friend, he would have prevented. She had all the while been telling her father that she was not in a hurry to marry, and put him off the scent.
  • I had no inkling of his plans to buy a house; otherwise I would have offered my house to him for sale. Only when he invited me to his new home did I come to know of it.
