When we make a promise, we “send” our word “ahead” or in advance. When we submit a job application we are sending it from below (sub) to someone of higher authority (the employer). A similar sense of “send” from “below” is found in the words submission and submissive.

Spelling Hint All verbs built on the base mit are accented on the final syllable (commit, remit, permit, admit) When a syllable is added to these verbs to form the past tense or present (ed,- ing) the final t of the word is doubled (committed, permitted, omitted).
