    *puts hand up* I always get mixed up with that one! Same with practise/practice! And advice/advise.

    I'm a bit of a hypocrite really! ... Or is that a Hippocrates? ;-)

    Advice is the noun, advise is the verb. I *think* practise/practice is the same, but not 100%

    Practice is the noun, practise is the verb.

    Yes, but conversely I had an online argument with someone recently who insisted on writing "the principle actor", as he had been taught that "principal" was reserved only for headmasters/mistresses! (Please note that I was not picking him up on his mistake; a school-aged Facebook friend posted a question to me about the spelling and I was answering her... he just decided to pick a fight with me!)

    With practice/practise, I use this one... Do you remember the show "A Country Practice"? (I might be showing my age here!)

    It was about a doctors' practice in the country. When I was learning how to spell the two words, I just remembered that "country" started with "C", and that was the correct letter to use in "practice" too. Or that there were no "Ss" in the show's title, only "Cs".

    I hope that's not too obscure
