advice / advise

Advice is a noun, and advise is a verb:

  • She gave me some good advice.
  • She advised me to get some rest.

    There’s also a pronunciation difference: advice has an “S” sound, and advise has a “Z” sound.

    Don’t make the common error of saying “advices” – the word advice is uncountable. However, you can say “pieces of advice”:

  • The consultant gave me three pieces of advice for my business.
