Enquire and inquire...

Post by Breezey Breezey on Thu Jan 13, 2011 11:55 am

Is there a difference in usage of these words? If so, what is it?

And in my larger dictionary, under enquire, it says "See inquire", so I guess there isn't really much difference at all!

I really have to wonder why we need two words with almost the exact same spelling that mean the same thing! Any thoughts on that? Do "Inquiring" or "enquiring" minds want to know? Haha!! So... enquiring isn't a word?

Yeah.... and the problem seems to be you can't use both exactly the same, once you try using different endings (ing), I think?

Roxanna, haven't you been told... there is always a choice? lol
