Correct spelling, explanation: usual is an adjective, from which we make an adverb usually. To create an adverb we add suffix -ly to an adjective, that’s why there is double l in usually. However the base word – usual is spelled with one l. Spelling of the adverb may be the reason why usual is sometimes confused with
usuall, however the latter is incorrect.
Definition of usual:
adjective, habitual; commonly present
Drinking two cups of coffee in the morning is her usual thing.
Ghosting people on tinder is so usual nowadays!
Incorrect spelling, explanation: this form is incorrect, because we spell usual with one l. Then, when making an adjective, suffix -ly is added, hence double l in usually. However in usual there is only one l, so
usuall is a misspelling.
