I would like to clarify those two words as follows misunderstanding and misunderstood.

For instance, Peter thought that I told him to buy a sandwich for me.
Then, I said that he misunderstood as I have never asked him to do that. Can I say that I am sorry but that's a misunderstanding ?

Are they both correct ?

Thank you

    Misunderstanding is often used as a noun. It is actually a verb. Misunderstood is the past tense of 'misunderstand'.

    There was a misunderstanding between the two parties.

    I misunderstood what you told me and that lead to a misunderstanding.
