  1. Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. There is a difference in some words between the American spelling and the British spelling:
    practice / practise
    advice / advise
    complimentary / complementary
    defence / defense

    I suggest you look each up in a dictionary to see if they meet the requirements you request.
