Did you learn to spell dilemma or dilemna?

3 years ago

I was surprised to see dilemma in the Design Dilemma forum spelled with two m's. I thought it was a mistake and even asked Dh who is a very good speller. He said it was dilemna. After doing a search, I discovered that we had both been taught wrong (as many people have) and that dilemna is not even an alternate spelling!

I'm curious as my search indicated many teachers have taught the wrong spelling. How did you learn to spell dilemma?
