- For Teachers
Please, I want to know about difference between invite and invitation.
Invite is a verb
Invitation is a noum
Why can't I use "Thank you for invite me"?
Invite in this case is a verb?
But in this case, my teacher changed for "invitation", not "inviting" :(
I rewrite my PET Exam Teste, can you help me with my doubts?
How are you? Thank you for invitation
( [a] invite)me, but my wife will go to her father’s house, and I need to go with her ( [b] I need follow her), I’m sorry! What do you think about meetings ( [c] think to meet us on)next Sunday at ( [d] on)my house?
a) INVITE is a verb, why can’t I use in this phrase “Thank you for invite me”?
b) “I need to go with her” and “I need follow her” is the same?
c) What is incorrect in this phrase “What do you think t meet us on...”
One more question.
Example if I want to say:
"Thanks you for go with me" - The same at "Thanks you for invite me"
Do I need put -ING if I use "FOR"?
"Thanks you for going with me"
Its a rule?

Invite is also a noun. It is mostly used informally as indicated by the link below
Informal . an invitation.

So I wouldn't really mark it as a mistake if you used one word instead of the other. I've heard plenty of people say "Thanks for your invite" in the right context.
More importantly, I'd focus on using a possessive adjective or a definite article before invite/invitation, which is necessary in the example provided, e.g.
Thanks for your /the invite/invitation.
I've heard plenty of people say "gonna" and "ain't". In an English exam, they're incorrect. I've also heard plenty of things that are demonstrably ungrammatical.
Many people can not or do not speak correct English.
Didn't I say its usage would depend on the context?
