On the heels of the Scripps National Spelling Bee let’s take a look at the most misspelled words in each state. Spelling is kind of a lost art. People either have everything automatically spell-checked, or just don’t care if they’re right or wrong.  But still after reading this list . . .just  wow!

(First of all, Yes I know I misspelled Missspell in the Title.. I was trying to be funny and wanted to see if anybody noticed)

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.  Here are some 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.


  1. 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.”


  1. 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.”


  1. 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.”


  1. Congratulations Idaho, you have the most trouble spelling “quote” Really? How are people spelling it kwote?  cwote?  Kuote? I’m imbare-assed!  Wait, is that right?
