The words will surprise you!
Let's face it: the English language can be complicated, especially when it comes to spelling! And while googling how to spell a word is the easiest option, it's also the most dangerous option because you're actually leaving a record of your embarrassment all over the internet.
It seems that Google employees like to bring our spelling searches to the forefront because they've created a map called "America's Top Spelling Searches" for all 50 states in the USA. While you would expect to see words like "belligerence" or "aficionado," unfortunately, it seems that our Google spelling searches are for commonly used words.
So, what word spellings did we search Google for in the DMV?
Virginia searched the spelling of "beautiful," D.C. looked up "enough," and Maryland searched for "heart."
Really, Maryland?? Sheesh.
If you would like to take a gander at the other 50 states, here is the map!
Google created the map in honor of the National Spelling Bee, which took place earlier this summer.
Some of the results were quite surprising considering the simplicity of the words. Eight out of the 50 states all googled the word "beautiful," making it the most commonly misspelled word. That's not quite as embarrassing as Hawaii googling how to spell, "Hawaii," or Idaho searching the word "embarrassed" ... pretty ironic, don't you think?
