Incorrect spelling


Incorrect spelling, explanation: a lot of English words contain double consonants. It is no different in the case of the word apparent – to spell it correctly, we need to double the -p letter. Some, however, forget about it and write it incorrectly – as aparent. You can associate this adjective with similar words: appear or appearance.

Definition of apparent:
adjective, able to be seen or understood

Correct spelling


Correct spelling, explanation: the adjective apparent must be spelled with the double -p consonant. It originates from Old French aparant and from Latin apparent. Its modern construction looks exactly like the Latin version. This word is also connected with appear and appearance. Therefore, the only right form is apparent, not aparent.
