Incorrect spelling, explanation: we don’t spell this word with suffix -able since this suffix is in most cases used with words that are left full form without the suffix (for example dependable without the suffix is a full word depend; visible without a suffix is just vis, thus not a word). Moreover, vision is a Latin-core word and with such words, we mostly use the suffix -ible. This is why
visable is incorrect and visible is the right spelling.
Correct spelling, explanation: vision is the word of Latin origin and because of that, we used -ible suffix and got the word visible. Another reason is an unwritten rule saying that if we take the suffix out of the word, it is left unfinished (visible without -ible is just vis – not a core word). This is why visible is correct and
visable is a mistake.
