Incorrect spelling, explanation: the plural form of the word journey is journeys, but many English users make a mistake and spell it as
journies. The mistake probably comes from the fact that when there is a consonant before the -y letter in a singular form it is true that we change it to -i and then add the -es ending to create a plural noun. However, in the case of journeys, there is a vowel before the -y letter so the only correct form is journeys.
Correct spelling, explanation: the origin of the word journeys is the Latin word diurnus or diurnum, which had a different meaning than today as it used to mean daily portion. Later, the word appeared in Old French, in which it had the form journee and it is more close to the word we know today. Finally, in the Middle Times journeys entered English.
