No, it is spelled Sherbet. Sherbert is not a word.





It is actually pronounced Sher-bit.





"sherbet |ˈ sh ərbit|
noun
a frozen dessert made with fruit juice added to milk or cream, egg white, or gelatin.
• a frozen fruit juice and sugar mixture served as a dessert or between courses of a meal to cleanse the palate.
• (esp. in Arab countries) a cooling drink of sweet diluted fruit juices.
• Brit. a flavored sweet effervescent powder eaten alone or made into a drink.
ORIGIN early 17th cent.: from Turkish şerbet, Persian šerbet, from Arabic šarba ‘drink,’ from šariba ‘to drink.’ Compare with syrup .
USAGE The tendency to insert an : r into the second syllable of sherbet is very common. Frequency of misuse has not changed the fact that the spelling sherbert and the pronunciation |ˈ sh ərbərt| are wrong and should not be considered acceptable variants."





That's what the dictionary says. Can't argue with the dictionary.

I am, too.
When my mom needs help spelling something, she always asks me.

To this day, I have to spell spaghetti whenever we have some leftover. Nobody else can spell it.
