Incorrect spelling, explanation: whether to double a letter in a word or not is often a hard one, especially when the word is long and you know that for sure there is a double. Thus, a common mistake is to double -g, which gives
aggreement, but this form is obviously incorrect.
Correct spelling, explanation: agreer is an Old French word that is the origin of the present form – agreement. The old form had a similar meaning to the contemporary one as it meant make agreeable to. A common prefix that is added to the word is -dis and therefore in the word family, we will find disagree and disagreement.
