Clear as Mud

So “advise” is a verb and “advice” is a noun. I can advise you or give you advice, but I can’t advice you or give you advise.

Advise is spelled with an “s” but pronounced with a “z”. Advice is spelled with a “c” but pronounced with an “s”.

Then there’s “vice” and “vise” which have totally different meanings but are pronounced the same.

And we wonder why Japanese have trouble with English spelling.

Go figure.
