Correct spelling


Correct spelling, explanation: when we want to create a past participle or past simple of the verb submit, we must add the suffix -ed and double the consonant. It’s worth mentioning that it’s not always the case when it comes to irregular verbs: we need to double the last (and stressed as well) consonant in a basic word if there’s a single vowel before it. Always remember that rule and you won’t make that common mistake. Therefore, the only correct spelling is submitted, not submited.

Incorrect spelling


Incorrect spelling, explanation: it’s not always enough to just add a specific suffix to the end of a verb in order to create a past simple/past participle form. Sometimes we also have to double the last, stressed consonant – when there is a single vowel before it. That’s why you can’t spell submitted as submited – it lacks the double -t letter. One must remember that it consists of three parts: submit + t + ed, so it’s not right to omit any of them. Submitted is the only correct version of this word.
