as even develope can also be prefix and it is also even correct then why not developement is correct?
There is no extra character added because “Develope” is also an accurate, albeit older, correct spelling of the word “Develop”. Because of this, while uncommon, “Developement” is also spelled correctly.
Totally tremendous spellings here. We are very glad to see your spelling site. Thank you
You are right.
