Incorrect spelling, explanation:
conection is incorrect, because n should be doubled, due to prefix con- in original Latin form connexare. Because two n’s met each other, they were doubled and this spelling remained in English form connection. Therefore connection is the correct form.
Correct spelling, explanation: this form is the correct one, because connection comes from Latin connexare. Double n has already been there in original form. Moreover the Latin word n must have been doubled due to combining two words (prefix con- and the word nectere). Therefore connection is the correct spelling, while
conection is a mistake.
Definition of connection:
