Tossing around for the right word?



as/like

'As' is a conjunction and introduces a clause.
Example: The jury listened as the defendant stated his case.
'Like' is a preposition followed by a noun or pronoun in the objective case.
Example: Her twin sister looked like her.


enquiry/inquiry

These two words are used in current English communication and, in fact, are shown as 'variations' in the majority of dictionaries. However, we would determine that the following is a fair explanation:
'Enquiry' is to ask (somewhat informal)
'Inquiry' is a word used when a hearing takes place (formal)


good/well

'Good' is an adjective meaning having the right qualities.
Example: The dessert was good.
'Well" is an adverb explaining how something is done.
Example: The team work together well.
