Yes. Look at Paul's very good example (post #49). Suggest can mean recommend. But it can also mean "propose as a likely fact or set of facts".Forero wrote:
A: Every time the wind changes, he sells his car.
B: I suggest that every time the wind changes, he wants a new car.
A: But wanting a new car does not mean selling an old one.
B: I suggest that he sells his old car to buy a new one. He could not afford a new one so often otherwise.
Is this a common way to use "suggest" in daily speech?
But I would change Forero's last sentence above, since B is describing a repeated action by the man A and B are talking about. I'd say: I suggest that he sells his old cars to buy new ones. He couldn't afford a new one so often otherwise.
Your question about "every time the wind changes" is a separate topic and should start a new thread.
