Invite vs Invitation - English Grammar - Teaching Tips
This video breaks down the difference between the two words invite and invitation. They are often used interchangeably but actually aren't synonyms. The word invite is a verb and refers to the action of asking someone if they’d like to do something or go somewhere, such as here: 'I want to invite all my friends to a BBQ party'. Invitation, on the other hand, is a noun and refers to the actual message of asking someone if they’d like to do something or go somewhere. A suitable example would be: 'I sent out an invitation to all my friends'. A very common mistake is to use 'invite' as a noun instead of 'invitation'. However, the sentence ‘I haven’t responded to her invite yet’ is incorrect and 'invitation' should be used.
