Incorrect spelling, explanation: you can’t spell this noun as
loction because this version lacks one of the vowels, which changes its structure. If one’s not sure how to write down a word in the English language, one should check its etymology first. Location originates from Latin locatio and it’s the only correct form.
Correct spelling, explanation: location is a noun that has a long history. It comes from the Latin language and we must stick to the etymology when spelling this word. It contains four vowels: -o, -a, -t, and -o. The incorrect version contains only three of them. Therefore,
loction is just a mistake.
Definition of location:
noun, a place where something happens or exists
