Incorrect spelling, explanation: integral is a word with simple spelling, but somehow quite a large number of English speakers use the word
intrical instead of integral. Many people claim that the former sounds better and is easier to pronounce. Maybe it’s true, but it’s wrong and in fact, intrical is not even a word and the only correct spelling is integral.
Correct spelling, explanation: integral is a word of Latin origin, in which it had the forms of integer and integralis, which could be translated as whole.
