Surely if you are practising hockey, its with an s, not a c? Bloody spell check.
Yes you are right
yes you are absolutely right - check you have your language set to UK English and not US English.
practise verb, practice noun.i think thumbwitch is right: they don't differentiate in US english: got rid of all the confusion, i believe
s - verbc - noun ???
lovely. thanks all.
AArggh! This does irritate me. DS3's teacher always asks them to 'practice' their spellings in their homework books.
best way to remember it is to think 'advice' and 'advise' - one of the few examples that actually sounds different so you can always work out when it should be the c and when the s.nickel, i don't know about getting rid of the confusion, how can the US possibly defend their use of "defense"?
andlipsticktoo: the teacher needs to practise her spellings, too, it would seem!thumbwitch: i don't understand american english and oh, i love your advice advice: we should advisse more people to use that example!
bogger: sticky ss key....
