cancelation (plural cancelations)

  1. Alternative spelling of cancellation

Usage notes[edit]

Despite the widely used form of canceled vs. cancelled in American English, the word cancellation is still much more widely used than the variant cancelation.

The usage of two ls is a remnant of British English, remaining even after American English instated spelling changes[1].

Regardless, the choice to spell the word as either cancellation or cancelation is entirely arbitrary.
