ADVICE VS. ADVISE
What's the difference between advice and advise?
Advice is a noun that means guidance about what someone should do. Advise is a verb that means to give someone advice about something.
Despite their very similar spelling, advice and advise are pronounced differently. Advice rhymes with ice, while advise rhymes with prize.
Because the two words are so closely related, they are often used in the same contexts, so the challenge is simply to remember which spelling to use for the noun and which spelling to use for the verb.
Our advice? Remember that, unlike advise, advice never gets an s, even at the end (advice is a mass noun, so it’s never pluralized as advices).
Here’s an example of advice and advise used correctly in a sentence.
Example: I advise you to get some professional financial advice before you start a business.
