Is acknowledge the correct spelling?

The 'proper' spelling of the word is 'acknowledgment' but 'acknowledgement' has become so common that it is no longer considered an error; that is, either is acceptable. The language grows and changes. Many words are spelled differently today than they were just a few years or decades ago. Spelling and definition of words are determined by common usage. As a different meaning or spelling of a word becomes commonplace, it becomes first accepted, then 'correct.'
