PET - ADVISE, ADVICE
The words ADVISE and ADVICE can cause some confusion.
- I need some ADVICE, so who can ADVISE me, and can I have many ADVICES?
In the phrase I NEED SOME ADVICE, ADVICE is an uncountable noun.
It is also spelt differently from ADVISE, which is a verb.
- That is very good ADVICE.
- Can you ADVISE me what to do.
ADVICE is an uncountable noun, so the correct form is SOME ADVICE.
AN ADVICE is incorrect.
Many ADVICES is also incorrect.
ADVISE is a verb.
