Misused Words: Advice VS Advise

Advice and advise are pretty similar which is why they often get mixed up. The main difference, besides the spelling, is their part of speech.

Advice Vs Advise

Advice is a NOUN that means to offer a suggestion or recommendation.

For example: My advice is that you write 500 words per day. Tom gave Joan a lot of writing advice.

Advise is a VERB that means to give advice or counsel.

For example: I will advise Tom to start writing his article soon. It also means notification. For example: Janice advised Tom that she was finished with her short story.
