Can invoke be used in the same sense as 'to bring forth'? Especially when it comes to emotions, such as "to invoke contempt". Would it be proper to say that? —This comment was unsigned.
- I don't think so. You may have heard evoke, which is used exactly that way. DCDuring TALK 18:38, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

Root spelling is 'invoc—'
But forms such as "invoke" or "invoker" use /K/ rather than /C/ as explained by the standard c/k substitution rule.
Other derivative terms should be added such as "invocation" and "invocation".
