Incorrect spelling, explanation:
salery is an incorrect form because the word salary has been known since Anglo-French salarie (pronunciation remained, only spelling slightly changed), so there is no e but a there. Therefore salary is the correct form.
Correct spelling, explanation: this form is the correct one because of the original Anglo-French spelling salarie. As we can see (or rather hear) salary has got similar pronunciation to salarie and it has changed its spelling slightly since Anglo-French times. Therefore
salery is a mistake and salary is the correct spelling.
