Monday Muddle: conscious, conscience

Monday Muddle: conscious: (adjective) aware of a situation or of one's surroundings; awake; alert conscience: (noun) inner thoughts or feelings that lead you to speak or act in a way that is in keeping with your beliefs; an inner sense of right and wrong

The noun form of the adjective conscious is consciousness. That is what you would regain if you had been asleep, knocked out, or in a coma. Hopefully you will never lose your conscience, and therefore you won’t need to regain it.

      I’ve seen people talking about regaining conscience numerous times, as well as stream of conscience. I’ve also seen someone making a conscience effort, which I expect was conscientious. I’m sure it happens more often than you can imagine.
