While doing a textbook exercise I came across this sentence, please correct it, so as to get the correct usage :- 'The teacher gave me many advices.'
This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
- "Proofreading questions are off-topic unless a specific source of concern in the text is clearly identified." – Hellion, tchrist
Slightly surprisingly, “advice” is an uncountable (mass) noun in English (like “water” or “sand”), and as such it has no plural form: His advice was very helpful. (correct) His advices were very helpful. (wrong)
So, a correct form of the sentence could be:
"The teacher gave me advice many times."
"The teacher advised me many times."
