Writting or Writing :




One of the comments English teachers dread to see on their evaluations is “The professor really helped me improve my writting."


When “-ing" is added to a word which ends in a short vowel followed only by a single consonant, that consonant is normally doubled, but “write" has a silent E on the end to ensure the long I sound in the word.


Doubling the T in this case would make the word rhyme with “flitting."
