Incorrect spelling

addmission

Incorrect spelling, explanation: it is quite a common mistake to double a -d letter in the word admission, which gives the incorrect form addmission. The mistake probably comes from the fact that some users of English believe that the word admission is a combination of two English words – add and mission. However, it is not and the only correct spelling is admission.
