What is New York’s Most Commonly Misspelled Word?
Google Trends recently released an infographic showing the most commonly misspelled word in each state. Some of the misspellings are really understandable, like leprechaun. There's a lot of vowels in that word and it can be easy to forget one or two of them. Others are headscratchers, like banana (really Ohio?) and tomorrow (here's lookin' at you, Florida).
The most embarrassing spelling mistake on the map is probably Massachusetts, where the most commonly misspelled word is...Massachusetts. Although I have to say it made my heart sad when I saw New York's most commonly misspelled word -- beautiful. Really NY? Beautiful?
Maybe it's just me, but I will never forget how to spell that word thanks to Jim Carrey in Bruce Almighty (a movie set in my hometown of Buffalo).
Hopefully, you'll never have to Google how to spell beautiful ever again either! You can check out the full infographic below. Have a b-e-a-utiful day!
