How Do You Spell INN?

The word "inn" is commonly spelled with two "n's", but why? This phoneme is actually represented by a unique IPA symbol, /n/. When "inn" is pronounced, the tongue touches the alveolar ridge (the bump behind the upper teeth) to create the /n/ sound twice. Double "n" in English often signals the presence of a short vowel sound, as in "inner" or "manner". So, the spelling of "inn" is simply a reflection of the way the word is pronounced, with two distinct /n/ sounds.
