The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS April 18/2020

I am late doing my SoCs but as my dad would of said better late than never.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “practice/practise.” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

2019-2020 SoCS Badge by Shelley! 

So what is the difference between practice and practise. They sound the same and even look similar (except that one is spelled with a “c” and the other with an “s”) but their meanings are different. The word “practice” is a noun, it refers to an act itself, not who is doing it. On the other hand, practise is a verb meaning ‘do something repeatedly to improve one skill’.

In the USA you only use practice for a verb or a noun but here in the UK we use practice as a noun and practise as a verb.

So I go to the Dr’s or Dental practice but a Dr or Dentist practise their skills.

Very accomplished Fairy

Would practise her magic

Until she was perfect

Finally to her joy she became

A magic practitcioner of fame.
