Correct spelling

definitely

Correct spelling, explanation: to create an adverb from an adjective we have to add suffix -ly. If the word ends with an e it is often skipped, however only if the suffix begins with a vowel. -ly begins with a consonant, therefore we do not drop the e; this way we also don’t drop the e in definitely. Definitly is thus an incorrect form.

Definition of definitely:
adverb, in a definite way; obviously
I definitely don’t want to go there.
It was out best holidays, definitely.
