Correct spelling, explaination: the word has its origins in a verb commend which means to praise, to express contentment about something, and a prefix re- which usually refers to showing repetition of action. So this is mistaken to use the form
recomend, which omits one m from the original word.
Definition of recommend:
1. verb, to advice somebody what to do in a specific situation, to give kind of instruction.
My doctor’s recommended me staying at home, so I won’t be able to be at work tomorrow.
Police officer strongly recommended being more careful on the road next time.
2. verb, to praise or suggest something to someone, for example a product
Can you recommend me some good shampoo for dry hair?
Incorrect spelling, explaination: as the original verb is a mix of another verb (commend that we use to show our satisfaction towards somebody’s work, results, etc.) and a prefix re- it is wrong to omit one m in the middle of the word, and recommend is the correct spelling.
