Advice vs Advise. Why don't you know the difference?

It really upsets me when I see people using these words incorrectly.

Advice
ex: "I asked my friend for advice today."

Advise
ex: "I would advise you to get started on your project early."

Is this clear now?

  • Do you not understand that words are but placeholders for underlying concepts?

    The word advice could easily be gluby.
    It's the relationship the words have together that attempt convey (at least a portion) of the concept.

    I could easily introduce nonsense words that have no meaning into a sentence but you could still understand.

    Ex1: Gosh I was driving down the road and this glimbo boshed my crumbish I had to swerve to avoid a serious accident.

    It's really all nonsense. All air vibration. No reason to be upset. Especially if you the person meant advice when writing advise.

    • Of course I knew it was a joke. But why joke about something so... stupid.

    • Hm, a lot of jokes are stupid.

    • Haha, no I'm not. I guess it's just that I understand the difference and I read it correctly. I get the message they're trying to say but I'll read it the way it's written and I'll notice that it's wrong.

    • Oh, yeah, that is assumed, that a person has to 'interpret' the wrong words for what the writer meant!! :)
      My brother, his wife, and my mom were all teachers, so I am like 'OVERWHELMED' all the time with them correcting just about everything anyone says!!! It's a terrible habit, and I don't know how I picked it up!! Kind of like stepping in dog sht, with shoes that have a tread, and you just can't get it all out, so you keep smelling it!!! :)

  • They're is a problem with this. I don't know if their different ways to use words.
    There so hard to understand...

    :)

  • The reason might be akin with why you aren't working for NASA, or writing 600-pages novels rivalling Hesse's.

    As simple as that it is :)

  • I know the difference! Lol. My husband occasionally mixes up words like that, but English isn't his first language.

  • I didn't know people could mix up those words. They're so different, I thought that was obvious. I do think it's really annoying when people mix up other words like affect and effect, than and then, their/there/they're, etc.
