Correct spelling, explanation: the noun location was borrowed from Latin locatio, locationis (a placing), from locare (to place, put, set, let), and from locus (a place). The right form has three syllables and the incorrect form (
loction) has only two. This word’s structure should accord with its etymology.
Definition of location:
noun, a particular place or position
The company I work for recently changed its location.
I want to rent this apartment – it’s in a really good location.
Collocations with location:
Some most commonly used collocations include: ideal location, accessible location, specific location, secret location, countryside location, and to pinpoint one’s location.
Incorrect spelling, explanation:
loction is a non-existent word – it doesn’t appear in any dictionary. This mistake may occur if one of the vowels – the -a letter – is omitted. An omission like that changes not only the spelling but also the pronunciation and should therefore be avoided. The only correct form is location, as also indicated by the history of this word.
