I've read some of the other responses but personally I think "reinvite"
is fine even in a social use as in reinvite to a party that was
previously cancelled. What other word could it possibly be confused
for?

PS - King's English is decent, but I'm sure there are better ones:

Hi group

Which is correct: to reinvite or to re-invite?

I think "reinvite" should not be hyphenated because the word is
unambiguous.
My English grammar books tell me to use a hyphen after the "re-" prefix
only to avoid ambiguity, for example:

re-cover vs. recover
re-lease vs. release

Is this correct?

By the way, are there any good online English Grammar references you can
recommend?

Thanks
