Hi teachers!

Is it OK to say 'the party where I invited' instead of 'the party to which I was invited'?


Thanks in advance ☺

Is it OK to say 'the party where I invited' instead of 'the party to which I was invited'? (I think you meant to type the party where I was invited'.)

No, don't say that. We often say 'the party I was invited to'.

I guess you meant to type "the party where I was invited".

No, even with my correction. The usual way of saying it is "the party I was invited to". The version "the party to which I was invited" is a product of a seventeenth-century attempt to apply Latin grammar to English, which condemned ending a sentence with a preposition. Some still think they sound better saying it that way. Of course, there probably are contexts in which the "to which" version is better. They are both correct.
