Incorrect spelling

addmission

Incorrect spelling, explanation: both learners of English and its native speakers often believe that the word admission combines two different words, namely, add and mission. As a result a common mistake in the spelling is to double a -d letter, which gives the form addmission. It is wrong, though, so do not use it.
