In this week’s instalment of his grammatical series Grammar 101, Australia’s most stylish Agony Uncle – Adrian Fernand – looks at the inexcusable confusion that arises in some quarters of the population between the words ‘invite’ and ‘invitation’.
It has crept into the vernacular with little scrutiny, however, â€˜inviteâ€™ and â€˜invitationâ€™ are two entirely different words. Sure, itâ€™s an abbreviation, but if someone were to send us a wedding â€˜inviteâ€™ â€”or worseâ€”print it on the front of the card, quite frankly we wouldnâ€™t go and would send a dictionary as a wedding gift. And might we add, if itâ€™s an exclusive invitation, only expect one person to arrive. Like this post to alert your haphazard Facebook friends to their erroneous ways and see an end to silly mistakes.
