    1. I'm can also be used in place of i am.

      Delete
    2. I have heard many Nigerians misuse "base" and "worth". Instead of saying "it is not worth it", they say "it does not worth it". And "i base in Lagos" instead of "i am based in lagos".

    1. To make it simple- advice is a noun eg I am giving you a piece of advice
      Advise is a verb, the act of giving an advice eh I advised you on the proper use of terms.
      Hope this helps

    1. The easiest way to know the difference is always remember "advise" is a verb and "advice" a noun

    2. The Poster substituted one for the other.

      Tablets are round dosage of medicine.

      Pills are tablets and all medicines of different shapes.

      Just few mistakes here and there but very very educative which is the intent. Thanks for sharing

    1. Well,these days where most words are being spelt in "abbreviations" e.g "ur" as "your" or "k" as "okay" or "l8r" as "later", you can't rule out the possibility that "am" is intended for "I'm". Just to add that these abbreviations sometimes irritates the hell out of me. Soon we'll be needing classes to understand this new language. Here, I have found some: MIL, DH, FIL. Imagine the effort it took for me to decode! Hissing.... (stopeeeet,issorait,jesox etc. Its not amusing!!!!)

      You are not alone, I have migraine just trying to figure out what the writer is passing across.
