SYN: suggestive, indication, material, intentional, lurking, indirect, assumed, undeclared, implicit

Definition: characterized by indirect references

Example:
""The saint on earth! Alas! if he discern such sinfulness in his own white soul, what horrid spectacle would he behold in thine or mine!" The minister well knew--subtle, but remorseful hypocrite that he was!--the light in which his vague confession would be viewed. He had striven to put a cheat upon himself by making the avowal of a guilty conscience, but had gained only one other sin, and a self-acknowledged shame, without the momentary relief of being self-deceived. He had spoken the very truth, and transformed it into the veriest falsehood. And yet, by the constitution of his nature, he loved the truth, and loathed the lie, as few men ever did. Therefore, above all things else, he loathed his miserable self!"
 
Nathaniel Hwathorne,
The Scarlet Letter

Explanation:
Hawthorne displays an allusive tone through foreshadowing purposeful images in order to exploit his intention in capturing a sense of suspense into his audience's mind. By ambiguously suggesting general senses such as guilt and deception, Hawthorne also compliments his words by listing words such as truth. With his appropriate use of indirect foreshadowing, he implies to his audience an underlying implication awaiting to unfold. Observing Hawthorne's use of punctuations and sentence structures, it is agreeable that by using commas and hyphens in creating long sentences help stimulate his thought and position, as he extends it without directly declaring it.
