Correct spelling

excellent

Correct spelling, explanation: excellent is the correct form, since this word is almost a direct loan-word from Latin (excellens which is the past participle form of excellere). All Latin forms connected to this word are spelled with double l, therefore excellent is the correct English spelling, not excelent.

Definition of excellent:
adjective, remarkably good, well done in an outstanding way
He did an excellent job with this project. He should be proud of himself.
exclamation, to point out one approves of something
– Everything is ready for the gala.
Excellent!


Incorrect spelling

excelent

Incorrect spelling, explanation: this is an incorrect spelling because it lacks one l, which is present in Latin origins of the word: excellens (past participle form of excellere). This points to excellent as the correct spelling and proves that excelent is wrong.
