These Are The Most Misspelled Words In Every State, According To Google


We've all been on the receiving end of internet grammar Nazis at some point, sometimes turning into one ourselves. Spelling something wrong is a little worse than pronouncing something wrong because the physical remnant of your mistake is still there for the world to point and laugh at long after you've realized and sometimes rectified your mistake. It's even worse when you accidentally end up misspelling a word that you've used your whole life like restraunt resturant restaurant and you don't get the red squiggly line or spelling suggestion before your post goes live or you send out that text message to someone who already roasts you for the most trivial of things as it is.

It isn't fun, but the good news I have for you today is that you aren't alone in these terrible experiences. Plenty of people misspell simple words and some brave souls are even unapologetic about it, but that isn't going to stop from self-proclaimed linguists to chime in and tell the person how much of an idiot they are for swapping two letters around on a long post.

The National Spelling Bee is currently underway. In order to celebrate its 90th year, Google Trends has released a map showing every state's most commonly misspelled words using data generated from US searches between January 1st and April 30th.
