|The noun hindrance, formed from the verb 'to hinder', is spelled correctly here. It does not have the internal '-e-' from the verb's last syllable - both the verb and the noun have two syllables. Hinderance is a common error.

  • A similar loss of '-e-' between a verb and a noun can be seen in encumber and encumbrance, and enter and entrance.
