Incorrect spelling, explanation:
togeather is incorrect. First of all, the word does not match the base word it comes from – gather, nor any of its older versions, as the word was never written as gaether. Second of all, the ae diphthong is rather rare in English, even more so in words as popular as together, as those tend to be the most concise and intuitive to speakers.
Correct spelling, explanation: together is an adverb, most likely based on an old English version of the verb to gather. There was a change of vowel, from a to e, but it is relatively common for vowels to shift over time in that way, which explains why and how to gather became together.
Definition of together:
1. In the company of; with someone else
I moved in together with my sister.
Together they look so perfect to me!
