Incorrect spelling, explanation:
arround is an incorrect spelling because there is no need to double r after the prefix a-. The core word for around is round and it starts with one r which doesn’t have to be doubled. This is why arround is wrong, and the correct spelling is around.
Correct spelling, explanation: the word’s origins is the word round, meaning in circles, in a shape of a circle. This word is spelled with only one r, so when the prefix a- was added to create the word around this consonant also wasn’t doubled. Spelling around is the correct one and
arround is thus incorrect.
