Incorrect spelling

prestigeous

This is why prestigeous may look like a correct word, but unfortunately – it is not. Base word of prestigious is very likely of Latin origin, which could explain the spelling.


Correct spelling

prestigious

Correct spelling, explanation: on one hand, prestigious is an adjective based on the noun prestige with a suffix -ous. On the other, this does not explain the spelling with I in a satisfactory way. Most likely, the word actually is more connected to the Latin word praestigiosis, which explains the irregular spelling.
