Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
- (transitive) To cancel an invitation to.
1988 May 6, Robert McClory, “The Divine Right”, in Chicago Reader:
- Edwina Gately, a lay missionary who works with prostitutes in Chicago, was recently "disinvited" from delivering homilies at two parishes after the pastors received conservative complaints.
- The prefix dis- gives a more negative implication to disinvite than the neutral implication un- gives to uninvite. One might "univite" guests because one had more than an anticipated number of acceptances. One might "disinvite" someone for a reason specific to the person.
- (to cancel an invitation): uninvite
