Definition tending to suggest or imply;
or: (usually followed by 'of') pointing out or revealing clearly
  • A blur of soot and smoke, now confusedly tending this way, now that way, now aspiring to the vault of Heaven, now murkily creeping along the earth, as the wind rose and fell, or changed its quarter: a dense formless jumble, with sheets of cross light in it, that showed nothing but masses of darkness:— Coketown in the distance was suggestive of itself, though not a brick of it could be seen.
