As a writer, teacher, and geography nerd, I was so excited about this map of America's most misspelled words
Then I saw my home state of Connecticut's most misspelled word (according to Google Trends): Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious
So stupid. Every other state (except for West Virginia) gets an actual word that we use in everyday life, and my state gets a word that I just wrote for the first time in my life.
I'd love to know who is misspelling this word with such frequency as to ascend to the top of the Google ranking in our state.
Looking at the map, there are also some words that I can't believe made the list.
How do Idahoans misspell "quote?" Forget the u? Start it with a k?
And how in the world do Mississippians misspell "nanny?"
Also, the people of Wisconsin apparently can't spell the name of their own state?
Then there's this list of most frequently misspelled search terms by state according to a pornography site. In this case, my state's most commonly misspelled word is "amateur," which at least makes a little more sense.
I admit I had to do some Googling to determine what "henti" and "hentia" were meant to be, and I still have no idea what "carton" is supposed to be.
Thoughts? Don't tell me if I don't want to know.
