Correct spelling, explanation: suggest is a commonly used verb in English and it has a long word history as suggest already appeared in English at the beginning of the 16th century. The word, however, has a Latin origin as it comes from the words sub and gerere, which together formed suggerere and could be translated as suggested or prompted. Later, it also changed its form to suggest and in this shape, it entered English too.
