Incorrect spelling, explanation: comparison is an example of a noun, created from a verb compare. As you can see, the element added to the base is ison. It means that the derived word is comparison, not
comparision. In the second case, the letter i is added after the consonant s, but it is not needed. As a result, comparision is incorrect and users of English should remember to write comparison with only one i. This is only correct form.
Correct spelling, explanation: the word originated from Old French comparaison where there is suffix a(i)son. In Latin, it was known as comparation and this ending ation still exists in such words as visitation, formation, and navigation. But in the case of comparison ation is changed into ison and this is similar to the words like venison or jettison. It clearly shows that only comparison is correct,
