The spelling of Notary terms i.e. Acknowledgments
In the Notary Profession, there are various types of Notary acts done. Roughly 80% of Notary acts done are Acknowledgments. But, the Notarial spelling of AcknowledgEment should NOT have an “e” after the “g” — e.g. — Acknowledgment.
Legal issues with “Notary Acknowledgement”
Although I have never heard of any legal consequences for spelling Notarial words incorrectly, it is just good form and a sign of a good upbringing to spell terms correctly. If you can master spelling Notary Acknowledgment correctly, then you can try to master funny looking Latin terms for the Notary industry like Locus Sigilli which means the location of the stamp.
