Google Trends just released the most misspelled word for every state.
The data was compiled from searches that started “how to spell…”
Virginia’s most misspelled word was “delicious.”
Wisconsin’s most misspelled word was…”Wisconsin.”
So, while Wisconsin deals with its identity crisis, let’s take a look at some other states for their hilarious (or sometimes completely understandable) spelling problems.
The ones with no excuses
New Mexico: Banana
That is bananas. B-A-N-A-N-A-S.
North Carolina: Angel
You just know people try to spell it “angle.”
Rhode Island: Liar
Are they confusing it with the instrument or…?
How do you mess up “quote”?
You’d think Mississippians would have a handle on their double letters.
South Dakota: College
The ones that are completely understandable
In a thousand years, humanity will have reached the singularity, cured cancer and perfected interdimensional travel and we’ll all still be trying to spell “vacuum” with two c’s.
South Carolina, Arkansas: Chihuahua
50 Shades of Grey. Gray’s Anatomy (the textbook). Grey’s Anatomy (the show). It’s confusing, man.
New Hampshire: Diarrhea
Prayers up for New Hampshire.
West Virginia, Connecticut: Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious
