Incorrect spelling, explanation: coming from Middle English amenden, the verb amend is spelled with one consonant m. To create a noun we add a suffix, here -ment, and the correct form is amendment.
Ammendment is, thus, incorrect.
Correct spelling, explanation: this form is correct because the word amendment is a noun made by adding the suffix -ment to the verb amend. This verb comes from Middle English amenden, also spelled with one m. Therefore other spellings, including
ammendment, are wrong and amendment is the only correct form.
Definition of amendment:
noun, a change or addition made to some document, for example, constitution; a state of being amended
They regard this amendment as an inexcusable disregard of the independence.
