Can you guess which spelling is correct? Hint: The word describes a keepsake that helps you remember something.
Christine C. asked whether the correct spelling is “memento” or “momento.” She says her dictionary shows both.
My sources say that although the word is sometimes spelled with an “o,” the correct spelling is “memento.”
A memento is a keepsake, a reminder of an event or a person.
Note that “memento,” is spelled like “memory” and “remember.” A memento is something to help you remember a happy or important memory.
