(RNN) – If this week’s Scripps National Spelling Bee teaches us anything, it’s that most of us mere mortals have a long way to go in the art of assembling words out of letters.
While the kids competing in Maryland may get tripped up on words like metastasize, metonymy and Weimaraner, your average American needs help with far simpler words.
Google Trends this week came out with a map that shows the top “how to spell” word searches for each state. These are the words people most often asked Google for help in spelling.
The most-common word is: beautiful. It was the top “how to spell” word in 11 states.
Six states took their cue from “Mary Poppins.” Their top word was supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.
In three states, the word was resume.
Check and see what the word is for your state.
