Please reply

Have you ever come across the abbreviation R.S.V.P.? You’ll find it on invitations to parties and special events. It’s the shortened form of the French phrase “Répondez s’il vous plait” and means “Please reply” or, in rather formal terms, “Respond if you please”. All you need to do is to inform the writer whether you are going to attend or not.
