Correct spelling, explanation: the word is probably a combination of prefix pro- and the word cession (ceding something, for example land). According to this origin the correct form is process and not
proccess, because there is no double c in the root word.
Definition of process:
1. noun, not finished action aiming to a result
It was a long and demanding process to learn Chinese.
2. verb, to organize or make something ready, for example documents
It took us two weeks to process all these photographs.
Incorrect spelling, explanation: the spelling
proccess is incorrect because there is no double consonant c in the core word cession, to which prefix pro- was added. The only correct form is spelling process.
