    amicable/amiable

    Is there a difference between 'amiable' and 'amicable'?

    Can I say, "It is an amicable invitation"?

    Re: amicable/amiable

    Amiable adjective friendly and pleasant in manner

    She was amiable in her manner towards us.

    Amicable adjective friendly and without disagreement.

    She was amicable to us having dinner together.

    It would be acceptable to say "amiable invitation", but most usual to say "kind invitation"
