What is the difference between the words "inquiry" and "query?" I tend to associate the latter with technology (e.g., search engine queries), but I'm not sure what the actual meaning is.
- Anybody can ask a question
- Anybody can answer
- The best answers are voted up and rise to the top
Query is asking a simple question that does not require more than basic knowledge. Inquiry is asking a question that requires further research or an investigation.
