The OED has drafted an entry for _implicature_ and cites Grice
as the originator; it has an extensive definition that I'm sure
would satisfy most people here.

I don't know when the entry will be published. If it waits until
the "I" range comes around, it could be a good long time; if we
decide to call it "high-profile" it could get online sooner.
