    Saw one recently- took a bit of deciphering, but a friend had "concurred" her washing pile.

    She meant conquered! CONQUERED!!!

    I just concurred with my washing pile. We agreed that if the pile stayed quietly in the corner I would ignore it until I really needed some clean clothes.

    Practice is a noun (I think - I admit I'm not fantastic with it). A doctor's practice, not the act but the place.
    Practise is to practise your music lesson - it is a verb.

    The doctor practises medicine at his medical practice.

    Practice and Practise
    There is often confusion over the words practice and practise. In order to understand which to use, you must know the difference between a noun and a verb. This is because practice is a noun, but practise is a verb.

    If you follow US convention, you don't need to worry about this as you can use practice for both noun and verb. If you follow UK convention and you're not sure how to spot nouns and verbs, there are tricks you can use to help you. See Hot Tip right.)

    Examples:

    You need more practice.
    ("practice" - noun)
    (Using the trick shown in the Hot Tip: "You need more preparation." This sounds okay. Therefore, practice is correct.)

    You should practise more.
    ("practise" – verb)
    (Using the trick shown in the Hot Tip: "You should prepare more." This sounds okay. Therefore, practise is correct.)

    They practice in the office for 10 weeks and are then sent out.
    (Using the trick shown in the Hot Tip: "They preparation in the office for 10 weeks..."
    This is nonsense. Therefore, practice is wrong. It should be practise. Using the substitution method shown in the Hot Tip, it would be: "They prepare in the office...")

    Keep practicing that stroke until the whistle blast.
