The historical source of the word "inauguration" stems from the Latin augur, which refers to the rituals of ancient Roman priests seeking to interpret if it was the will of the gods for a public official to be deemed worthy to assume office.

Public office

Political inaugurations often feature lavish ceremonies, in which the figure publicly takes his or her oath of office, sometimes called "swearing-in", often in front of a large crowd of spectators. A monarchical inauguration is similar to what some countries may be called a coronation or enthronement.

Inaugural address

The "inaugural address" is a speech given during this ceremony which informs the people of his or her intentions as a leader. A famous inauguration speech is John F. Kennedy's.

Official opening

Other than personal inaugurations, the term can also refer to the official opening or beginning of an institution or structure, for example the inauguration of a new Canada–United States border crossing.
