implicational and factive verbs

Hey guys.

A somewhat OT-question, although it concerns linguistics
in general. What's an implicative (implicational?) verb
and what's a factive verb? A compling friend of mine wants
to know and I don't know what to tell her. And yes, I did
look at all the sources I had, before asking the list. :-)
It isn't even listed in sil's glossary.

Does anyone have even a clue?

It seems to have something to do with the semantics of
the predicate, in which case it's not that hard to
figure out the meaning, but in case it doesn't...
