Incorrect spelling


Incorrect spelling, explanation: when spelling the word getting, you have to remember to double the -t letter. Why? Because of the popular rule in the English language, according to which the last (and stressed as well) consonant in a word must be doubled if there is a single vowel before it. That is the reason why the right form is getting, not geting.

Correct spelling


Correct spelling, explanation: this word is a merge of the verb get and the ending -ing. It was created the right way, with the double -t letter. It’s the only correct spelling, because – according to an important and very popular principle – the last (and stressed as well) consonant in a derivative must be doubled if there’s a single vowel before it. Getting is the right version while geting is a mistake.
