The correct spelling is DINING - One N

last month

I have been holding my tongue for the past several years on Houzz. What has become of our education system that simple spelling rules are not taught in school anymore? If it is a long vowel, only one consonant is needed. After a short vowel, two consonants are needed. The word dining,as in dining room, has only one consonant. The word dinning rhymes with winning. It comes from the word din and it means making a loud noise. Sorry, it’s been a long day and I’m rather cranky.
