Correct spelling, explanation: chocolate is the correct spelling, due to its unusual origin. The word comes from Nahuatl (Aztecan) chocola-tl (chocolate bean + water). Some sources also say that it may be connected with Mayan chocol – hot. It is thus clear, that chocolate with two o’s) is the correct spelling and
choclate is incorrect.
Definition of chocolate:
noun, type of food, usually sweet, prepared from cocoa beans
I love dark chocolate, but I don’t feel well when I eat too much.
Did you know that there is chocolate without sugar? It can be actually good for your teeth.
Incorrect spelling, explanation: this spelling is incorrect. This mistake occurred probably due to pronunciation (chocolate is pronounced [ˈtʃɒklət] so the second o is silent), hence the misspelling
choclate. The word chocolate however comes from Nahuatl (Aztecan) chocola-tl”, so this is the correct spelling.
