Incorrect spelling, explanation:
rediculous is an incorrect form since the word comes from Latin ridiculus. The correct form is ridiculous just like its Latin origin – starting with ri-, not re-. Taking all of the above into consideration we know that ridiculous is the correct form.
Correct spelling, explanation: the word ridiculous is a Latin-origin word, from ridiculus, also spelled with i at the beginning. There is no other form that would point to rediculous being the correct one, so it is definitely a mistake; probably a typo.
Definition of ridiculous:
I look ridiculous in this hat, I need another one for this outfit.
Don’t be ridiculous! There is nothing wrong with your plans!
