Invite and Invitation

Invite and Invitation :

“Invite" (accent on the second syllable) is perfectly standard as a verb:

“Invite me to the birthday party and I’ll jump out of the cake."

But “invite" (accent on the first syllable) as a noun meaning “invitation" is less acceptable: “I got an invite to my ex-wife"s wedding."

Though this form has become extremely popular, even in fairly formal contexts, it is safer to use the traditional “invitation."
