Some ink I bought for my printer is called sublimation ink. I thought the word sublimation meant changing from solid to gas without being liquid inbetween. How does this apply to standard inkjet ink?

Sounds like something that might be used for iron on transfer or maybe
you bought something used for a special printer.

It was just bottles of ink for a standard inkjet, I guess the seller screwed up, or maybe I could have chosen a different ink.
Actually, here's one, and this isn't sublimation ink. It's not the one I bought, this one is stupidly expensive, I pay 1p a ml.

I don't think it does apply to standard inkjet ink.

See this article about dye-sublimation printers:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dye-sublimation_printer

It starts:

A dye-sublimation printer is a computer printer which uses heat to
transfer dye onto materials such as a plastic, card, paper, or
fabric. The sublimation name was first applied because the dye was
considered to make the transition between the solid and gas states
without going through a liquid stage. This understanding of the
process was later shown to be incorrect. There is some liquifying of
the dye. Since then, the process is sometimes known as
dye-diffusion, though this has not eliminated the original name.
Many consumer and professional dye-sublimation printers are designed
and used for producing photographic prints, ID cards, clothing, and
more.

I have no idea whether dye-sublimation ink would work in a normal inkjet
printer.

I can't see me getting a solid fed to the nozzles, unless something heated it and made a gas first.
