Incorrect spelling

visable

Incorrect spelling, explanation: we don’t spell this word with suffix -able since this suffix is in most cases used with words which are left full form without the suffix (for example: dependable without the suffix is a full word depend; visible without suffix is just vis, thus not a word). Moreover vision is a Latin-core word and with such words we mostly use suffix -ible. This is why visable is incorrect and visible is the right spelling.


Correct spelling

visible

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 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.
