Thread: It is spelt as "L-e-n-s"...

  1. #1

    Default It is spelt as "L-e-n-s"...

    Dear folks,
    I find it funny so many people can't get the spelling right...

    Correct spelling: L-E-N-S (singular); L-E-N-S-E-S (plural)

    not L-E-N-S-E, not L-E-N.

    I hope this is useful. Cheers!

    use the correct form of the word also

    advise vs advice...

    You don't give advise, you give advice. you advise but not advice.

    Advice is a noun while advise is a verb.

    I thank you for your advice.

    I thank you for advising me.

    Your advice advising someone is an advisable advice.

    And how many times have you seen/heard people say something like, "I brought this lens from this shop for a bargain" or something similar.

    For goodness' sake, the past tense for buy is BOUGHT .... not BROUGHT.
