How to use "Inferential" in context?

The word "inferential" has a general meaning of suggesting a connection that does not exist independently. Inference can be made in many ways, both explicit and implicit. An inference can be explicit, as when we give an argument a specific form, and then rely on the logic of that argument to reach a conclusion. It can also be implicit, as when we reach a conclusion without explicitly stating it. An inference can be formal or informal. A formal inference is an argument that is specifically tailored to a specific form of reasoning, such as syllogistic reasoning.
