Hi,

I am trying to understand the proper usage of the word "solicit." Is this sentence right? P/S give me some sentences of your own if you feel generous.

I am soliciting for your help.

Solicit = ask for. Therefore: I am soliciting your help (no for). Solicit is a rather formal word, and it also means approach with an offer of sexual favors, so use it carefully.

Hi,

As to the meaning of "solicit," I do agree with you in that it sometimes means entreating/pleading for a sexual favor but that is a small piece of pie in terms of its everyday usage. I have seen it being used in many more different situations.
Hi, is there another word to use to replace the word "solicit" ie in this sentence:

"... from when an enquiry is solicited.."

Thanks.
