Incorrect spelling, explanation: the right word has its origins in an adjective final (meaning at last or ending) and suffix -ly, so any form different than
finally is mistaken.
Correct spelling, explanation: as the basic word ends with an l we need to double the consonant l by adding the suffix -ly in order to create an accurate adverb.
Definition of finally:
Adverb, eventually, as a final result.
My boss finally gave me the pay rise that I asked for months.
I bought a new mobile phone and now I can finally hear what the speaker says!
