Hello everyone, some of us knew the difference between words with almost the same spelling but has "c" and "s" as their distinction - that when checked are both spelled correctly though each has a different function. And for those who still get confused with it, I hope this would help.
The two functions I was referring above is as a noun (refers to name of persons, place, things and events) and as a verb (words denoting action). Take note of this simple reminders:
The one with "c" is a NOUN.e.g.
I was given an advice not to drink coffee at night for better sleep.
Advice here refers to a name of something/and use as an object therefore a noun. Another example is:
The prophecy was clearly written in the holy scripture.
Prophecy here is used as the subject of a sentence that is usually a noun or a pronoun; on this case it is a noun.
The one with "s" is a VERB.
I advised her not to drink coffee at night for to be able to sleep early.
Advised above is used as an action word/verb. Another example would be,
The holy bible prophesied the re-emergence of the true church.
On the above sentence, prophesied is used as a word denoting action, therefore a verb.
