Incorrect spelling, explanation: a common mistake in the word submit made by many English users is to spell the base form as
submitt, with a double -t letter, which is wrong. The mistake is probably the result of the fact that when we add an ending to the verb submit, e.g -ed or -ing, the -t letter at the end, indeed, is doubled, which gives submitted or submitting. The infinitive form, however, is submit.
Correct spelling, explanation: submit is an English word of Latin origin, which appeared in English in Middle English. The Latin form that submit comes from is submittere, which could be translated as present for judgement. Today, the word has a different meaning and it functions as a rather formal verb.
