Incorrect spelling


Incorrect spelling, explanation: this mistake may come from the fact that the basic form of the present participle/gerund of this word is get, not gett. When we create a present participle/gerund, we add the -ing suffix to the end of the root, but if a word ends with a stressed consonant and a single vowel, we need to double that consonant. That’s why the correct spelling is getting, not geting.

Definition of getting:
noun (gerund), to take something into your possession, or have something happen that you accept or receive
We’ve been having trouble getting staff.

Correct spelling


Correct spelling, explanation: stepping is a present participle/gerund form of the verb get. As you can see, to create this form, we need to do two things: first, add the popular suffix -ing to the word base, and second, double the last consonant, i.e. -t. One of the rules states that when a verb ends in one vowel and a consonant, the latter needs to be doubled. Thus, geting is a mistake and you should spell this word as getting.
