Does collect or between have double consonants?
Collect has double l's
It used to be the rule that you divide in the middle of the double consonants, but educational theory has moved away from this. Now, depending on which syllable is stressed, the division occurs either before or after the double consonant. The's not necessarily a right or wrong way. Some examples are listed here: bubb/le, hass/le, ev/ent/u/all/y.
