Everyone has that one word that always trips them up no matter how many times they try and Google the spelling. See which word Maryland residents misspell the most!
Remember the days when you had to lug out the dictionary when you didn’t know how to spell a word? Now the internet has made life so much easier. You can simply google how to spell a word you don’t know — and even better, Google autocorrect will help you out if you misspell the word.
In honor of Spelling Bee Week, GoogleTrends went on a search for the most commonly misspelled words by state. They found their results by looking at the top search term after “how to spell” by state over the last year.
The list is highly relatable with terms such as “sincerely,” “decision,” and “consequences” making the list. “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” even makes the list a few times. We can’t blame people for Google-searching the spelling of that one.
As for Maryland, apparently, we have the hardest time spelling “canceled.” Last year, Maryland residents had the hardest time spelling “special.”
This year “beautiful” was the hardest word to spell in the country, with it ranking No. 1 for 11 states.
