Incorrect spelling

wholely

Incorrect spelling, explanation: wholely is an incorrect spelling, although some sources point to it as an optional form of wholly. Wholly is the correct form and it is made by taking adjective whole and suffix -ly; as e is silent it is dropped. Therefore wholly is the correct spelling.
