Is it practise or practice?

There is always the difficulty of recognising American English spellings and British English spellings with words like these.

Whether we like it or not, much of our language is now heavily influenced by American English spellings. We use both forms in British English – one is a verb (doing word) and the other a noun (thing).

Practise

This is the verb ‘to practise’ and also the adjective from that verb (bullet 4 below).

Examples:

  • I practise the piano.
  • You are practising golf.
  • The doctor has been practising for 10 years.
  • He is a practised man.

Practice

This is the noun ‘the practice’ (as in ‘piano practice’ and ‘a doctor’s practice’).

Examples:

  • I have done my football practice.
  • Black Hackney Utility Brooks Rucksack England xHqYWFX
  • Without enough practice, she would not get better at English.
  • Taupe Girl Leather Heeled Dark Babylon Madden Sandals High Practice makes perfect.
  • She visits her local doctor’s practice.

Certain sets of words follow group rules of English grammar. Many rules of grammar are quite mathematical, with groups of words falling into building-blocks which all act the same way.

For example, the spelling rules are the same for ‘practice’, ‘licence’ and ‘advice’: the noun has a ‘c’, while the verb has an ‘s’.

One way of remembering this is that the word ‘noun’ comes before the word ‘verb’ in the dictionary; likewise ‘c’ comes before ‘s’, so the nouns are ‘practice/licenSandals Leather Heeled Madden Dark High Taupe Girl Babylon ce/advice’ and the verbs are ‘practise/licenSandals High Leather Taupe Dark Heeled Girl Madden Babylon se/advise’.

In fact, the confusion arises with ‘practice’ and ‘licence’ mainly because they sound the same with the ‘c’ or the ‘s’. However, with ‘advice’ and ‘advise’, there is a shift in sound, so there is no confusion at all. We can use this to our advantage: another way of knowing which to use is to replace the  ‘practice’ or ‘licence’ word you want with ‘advice’ or ‘advise’ – this will tell you whether you need the ‘c’ or the ‘s’ spelling.
