Incorrect spelling


Incorrect spelling, explanation: luxary is an incorrect word because it does not fit the original Latin word used to create it – luxus. Sometimes vowels change in the process of adapting a word to another language or to simplify it, but in this case, the u in luxus stayed the same in luxury, and it’s the spelling that changed and became more anglicized due to speakers’ convenience.
