Chalk Talk: Commonly Confused Words
It can be easy for students to mix up commonly confused words. The first example of words that students may use incorrectly are "accept," which means to take something that is being given, and "except"--another word for excluding. A second example is "advice" and "advise." "Advice" is a noun that means a recommendation or opinion given by someone else, often in response to a dilemma; "advise" is a verb that means the person is actually giving his/her opinion or suggestion to someone. "When I had a conflict in my family, I asked for advice." "When I have a conflict in my family, my two best friends advise me on what to do next." One more: "Allusion" and "illusion" are pronounced almost identically, but the former means a reference in a piece of literature, while the latter refers to a mirage.
