The National Spelling Bee started today, so of course Google found out which words Americans need the most help spelling by state.
Google employees were able to find the results by looking though "how to spell____" searches in each state between January and April. Whatever word would fill in the search was deemed the "most misspelled word" for the state, according to the Washington Post.
Users in West Virginia and Connecticut needed help with the longest word from the list, "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious,” while the shortest words "gray" and "liar" were the most searched in Georgia and Rhode Island respectively.
There were two words most searched by Americans. Google users from California, Kentucky, Minnesota, New York and Ohio most frequently needed help spelling "beautiful," while users in Alabama, Illinois, Maine, Michigan and Washington searched most for "pneumonia."
Google mapped out the "most misspelled words" in 2016 as well, with similar words like "pneumonia," "beautiful," "maintenance" and "gray" having made that list, too.
Many of the "most misspelled words" changed for each state since las year, but some still seemed to have issues with the same words. A year later, Washington still has trouble with "pneumonia," New York still has trouble with "beautiful" and New Hampshire still has trouble with "diarrhea."
On a positive note, Massachusetts no longer needs help spelling "Massachusetts," but sadly Wisconsin now needs help spelling "Wisconsin."
Here is the list for the "most misspelled words" of 2017:
Washington, D.C.: ninety
New Hampshire: difficult
New Jersey: twelve
New Mexico: bananas
New York: beautiful
North Carolina: angel
North Dakota: dilemma
Rhode Island: liar
South Carolina: chihuahua
South Dakota: college
West Virginia: supercalifragilisticexpialidocious
