    We've invited the boss, but (and) she . . .

    Hi,

    http://www.ldoceonline.com/dictionary/but_1

    - We've invited the boss, but she may decide not to come.

    I would like to ask if I can put 'and' instead of 'but' in that sentence.

    Thank you.

    No - that sentence needs 'but'.
