The Most Commonly Misspelled Words in Every State Are Hilarious

Greg Hewitt

Google just put together a map with the word that every state has the most trouble spelling . . . based on the number of searches for “how to spell” that word and all of its possible misspellings.

Missourians have the most trouble with “maintenance” while Illinois residents struggle the most with “appreciate.”

Here are a few more of the highlights . . .

 

1.  A few states have nothing to be ashamed of.  Like, the most misspelled word in Connecticut and West Virginia is “supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.”  I’m not sure it’s possible to spell that word RIGHT.

 

2.  Other states that Googled a legitimately tricky word include Michigan, Washington, Alabama, and Maine . . . all of which had trouble spelling “pneumonia.”  And New Hampshire, where people have trouble spelling “diarrhea.”

 

3.  But now, the BAD ones.  People in New Mexico somehow had the most trouble spelling “banana” . . . people in Ohio, New York, Minnesota, and California had trouble spelling “beautiful” . . . and people in New Jersey can’t spell “twelve.”

 

4.  But the most embarrassing is a tie between South Dakota, where the most commonly misspelled word is “college” . . . and Wisconsin, where the most commonly misspelled word is “Wisconsin.”
