Incorrect spelling


Incorrect spelling, explanation: when we form the past form of exit, we simply add the -ed ending, but what is important, we do not double the -t letter. Most English verbs indeed double the last consonant in such a case, but exited is some kind of an exception and it features a single -t letter. As many English users don’t know, a common mistake is to spell exited as exitted.
