    Re: enquiry

    I think enquire and inquire are the same.
    I am here to enquire about the teaching position that was advertised in the newspaper yesterday.
    I think inquire is just used more often when people write nowadays.
    So, an enquiry, as in an official government enquiry, probably reflects what was more common in the past. An inquiry, from one person to another, might be less official sounding. Really though, I think they are interchangeable.

    They are two different spellings of the same word.
