Correct spelling, explanation: the correct form, align, comes from French. The original French word – aligner – is written with one consonant l, and this is the reason why
allign is wrong and the correct spelling is align.
Definition of align:
1. verb, to put something in a certain order; in the line, to adjust
The characters of the second book don’t align with those from the first part, in my opinion.
2. verb, to join some group in common cause, to support someone with the same goals
This politician is aligning herself with conservatives.
Incorrect spelling, explanation: as the origin of the word points to one l in spelling (French aligner), we spell align with only one consonant l. Therefore
allign is an incorrect spelling.

I was just looking for your info for some time. After 3 minutes of constant googling, finally I found it on this guide. I wonder what’s the lack of Google policy that don’t rank this kind of quality sites in top of results. Generally the highest listed sites are full of garbage.
Ok I was wrong on that one.
