Incorrect spelling

definetely

Incorrect spelling, explanation: this form is a wrong one, because this adverb comes from adjective definite, spelled with i instead of e. Therefore definitely is the correct spelling, not definetely. The Latin origin is definire, thus also with i.


Correct spelling

definitely

Correct spelling, explanation: definitely is an adverb from the adjective definite, which comes from the word define and suffix -ite. By adding the suffix last vowel e was omitted. This is why definitely is correct while definetely is definitely a mistake 🙂
