Correct spelling, explanation: someone is an indefinite pronoun, which means it does not refer to any specific person, thing or amount, just like something, somewhere or somewhat. It consists of two parts: some + one. Some is a determiner (a modifying word that determines the kind of reference a noun or noun group has) and one is a number or a pronoun as well. This a very commonly used word in English, so it’s important not to spell it wrong. Just remember that
somone is not correct.
Definition of someone:

Incorrect spelling, explanation: you can’t spell the word someone as
somone, because this version doesn’t exist. It’s just a mistake and we can just guess where it came from. It probably occurs due to the pronunciation – in this case, the -e vowel is silent. However, we can’t forget to put this letter in the word. Someone is a very common pronoun and it’s really well-known. Remember not to omit the first vowel in it.
