Incorrect spelling, explanation: the form
verry is wrong because in Latin and Anglo-French core forms there is just one consonant r (verus, verai). From these words we got today’s very – the correct spelling for this adverb/adjective.
Correct spelling, explanation: very is correct as the word derives from Latin verus (verai in Anglo-French). This is why we spell this word with just one consonant r – just like in the original. Therefore
verry is a misspelling and is incorrect.
