    invite on

    1- I invited them to dinner on Saturday.
    2- I invited them on Saturday.

    Aren't these sentences ambiguous?
    May-be the invitation was made on Saturday and may-be the dinner was on Saturday.

    What if I say:
    3- On Saturday, I invired them to dinner.
    or:
    4-On Saturday, I invited them to dinner on Monday.

    Re: invite on

    Sentence 1 is ambiguous:

    1- I invited them to dinner on Saturday.
    ==> I invited them on Saturday
    ==> I invited them to dinner on Saturday.


    3- On Saturday, I invited them to dinner. (OK)

    4- On Saturday, I invited them to dinner on Monday. (awkward)

    TRY:

    I invited them on Saturday to come to dinner on Monday.
    :D
