Correct spelling, explanation: the expression dining room comes from a verb to dine, which entered English in the times of Middle English from an Old French form disner, which had the meaning to eat the main meal of the day. The origin of the word can be tracked in Latin, though. The idea of a dining room, however, appeared for the first time in ancient Greece.
