  Innuendo \In`nu*en"do\, n.; pl. Innuedoes(?). [L., by
     intimation, by hinting, gerund of innuere, innutum, to give a
     nod, to intimate; pref. in- in, to + -nuere (in comp.) to
     nod. See Nutation.]
     1. An oblique hint; a remote allusion or reference, usually
        derogatory to a person or thing not named; an insinuation.
        [1913 Webster]
  
              Mercury . . . owns it a marriage by an innuendo.
                                                    --Dryden.
        [1913 Webster]
  
              Pursue your trade of scandal picking;
              Your innuendoes, when you tell us,
              That Stella loves to talk with fellows. --Swift.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     2. (Law) An averment employed in pleading, to point the
        application of matter otherwise unintelligible; an
        interpretative parenthesis thrown into quoted matter to
        explain an obscure word or words; -- as, the plaintiff
        avers that the defendant said that he (innuendo the
        plaintiff) was a thief. --Wharton.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     Note: The term is so applied from having been the
           introductory word of this averment or parenthetic
           explanation when pleadings were in Latin. The word
           "meaning" is used as its equivalent in modern forms.
  
     Syn: Insinuation; suggestion; hint; intimation; reference;
          allusion; implication; representation; -- Innuendo,
          Insinuation.
  
     Usage: An innuendo is an equivocal allusion so framed as to
            point distinctly at something which is injurious to
            the character or reputation of the person referred to.
            An insinuation turns on no such double use of
            language, but consists in artfully winding into the
            mind imputations of an injurious nature without making
            any direct charge.
            [1913 Webster]

Din dicționarul Bouvier's Law Dictionary, Revised 6th Ed (1856) :

  INNUENDO, pleading. An averment which explains the defendant's meaning by 
  reference to antecedent matter. Salk. 513; 1 Ld. Raym. 256; 12 Mod. 139; 1 
  Saund. 243. The innuendo is mostly used in actions for slander. An innuendo, 
  as, "he the said plaintiff meaning," is only explanatory of some matter 
  expressed; it serves to apply the slander to the precedent matter, but 
  cannot add or enlarge, extend, or change the sense of the previous words, 
  and the matter to which it alludes must always appear from the antecedent 
  parts of the declaration or indictment. 1 Chit. Pl. 383; 3 Caines' Rep. 76; 
  7 Johns. R. 271; 5 Johns. R. 211; 8 Johns. R. 109; 8 N. H. Rep. 256. 
       3. It is necessary only when the intent may be mistaken, or when it 
  cannot be collected from the libel or slander itself. Cowp. 679; 5 East, 
  463. 
       4. If the innuendo materially enlarge the sense of the words it will 
  vitiate the declaration or indictment. 6 T. R. 691; 5 Binn. 218; 5 Johns. R. 
  220; 6 Johns. R. 83; 7 Johns. Rep. 271. But when the new matter stated in an 
  innuendo is not necessary to support the action, it may be rejected as 
  surplusage. 9 East, R. 95; 7 Johns. R. 272. Vide, generally, Stark. on Slan. 
  293; 1 Chit. Pl. 383; 3 Chit. Cr. Law, 873; Bac. Ab. Slander, R; 1 Saund. 
  243, n. 4; 4 Com. Dig. 712; 14 Vin. Ab. 442; Dane's Ab. Index, h. t.; 4 Co. 
  17.
