Neal is right and here are some examples for you: Can you raise your left arm? I am going to get a raise of $20 a week as I have been promoted. That is a good pay rise isn't it? I will rise up from my chair and greet her. It is morning children, rise [ get up] and shine! Do you think that the bread dough will rise?

Hi Daisy Here's a couple of alternatives: Raise - to lift something up Rise - what something does when it is being raised If you are talking about your salary or wages, a raise and a (pay)rise are the same thing.
