ADVISE VS. ADVICE
What's the difference between advise and advice?
Advise is a verb that means to give advice—guidance about what someone should do.
Despite their very similar spelling, advice and advise are pronounced differently. Advise rhymes with prize, while advice rhymes with ice.
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 advise and advice used correctly in a sentence.
Example: I advise you to get some professional financial advice before you start a business.
