Incorrect spelling, explanation: the correct spelling of the word masturbation is with the -u letter in the middle of the word. However, some users of English spell it with -e instead of -u, which gives an incorrect form
masterbation. Most probably it is the consequence of the pronunciation of the word as the sound is close to -e.
Correct spelling, explanation: the word masturbation came from the Latin form masturbari and it was not until the 18th century that it appeared in English for the first time.
