Tested, i am in en_GB for all
offensive is correct.
advisor should be adviser according to the oxford dictionary, advise,
panellist isnt in my dictionary _at all_ however panel only has one L so
i would spell it 'panelist' but as far as i can help you, its not a word
at all. - its not in *my* dictionary, it may be in others.
Practise is a verb like learning the drums over and over, practice is a
noun like a doctors practice - the place where he works
going to fill in the form now.
