Correct spelling, explanation: sense is a word based on the Latin sensus, which means both the feeling and the thought. Of course, as sense adapted to English it has lost the Latin -us ending, and took an e at the end instead, as many Latin-based words do. This way, the core structure of the word remained the same, while, at the same time, allowing the word to fit well into English vocabulary.
