Incorrect spelling, explanation:
rehersal is the wrong form, as the word comes from the word hear – rehear: hear again. We spell hear with the vowel a so it remains in rehearsal, and rehearsal is the only correct form.
Correct spelling, explanation: this word is spelled with ea because of its origin. Rehearsal derives from the word rehear as hear one more time. We spell hear with ea, therefore the correct form is rehearsal, not
rehersal. The mistake may come from the spelling.
Definition of rehearsal:
