Implicature is the implied meaning behind words and pictures that needs to be studied in order to know the meaning behind that. The data were all of the words that consist of implied meaning in the cigarettes‟ slogans. The results show that the cigarette products have their own slogan, message, lifestyle and they are suitable for certain community.
