Correct spelling


Correct spelling, explanation: the origin of ankle may be traced back to many different roots. The most important here is old English ancleow, but it explains the pronunciation more than it explains the spelling. But, if you’re ever unsure how to spell ankle, think about the word angle, which is most likely connected to a Latin root – angulus.

Definition of ankle:

I did not warm up before running and I sprained my ankle.
I have a tattoo on my ankle so it’s not very noticeable.

Incorrect spelling


Incorrect spelling, explanation: ankel is an incorrect spelling – but it’s easy to be fooled, especially if you see that in Dutch it’s written enkel. If you want to remember how to spell ankle correctly, remember the word angle. Both things bend (in a way), and they in fact share a Latin root – angulus.
