Every State's Most Misspelled Word According to Google

Can you spell "sauerkraut" without looking? How about  "Chihuahua," or perhaps "pneumonia?" 

  If spelling those words trips you up, don't worry — you're  not alone. 

Google published a graphic Tuesday of "America's most  misspelled words," a state-by-state look at the most common word  preceded in Google searches by the phrase "how to spell." 

"Pneumonia," and its legendary silent "p," topped the chart in  three different states: Alabama, Maine, and Washington.  "Beautiful" claimed even more victims, leading the way in  California, Kentucky, Minnesota, Ohio, and New York. 

The graphic coincides with the 90th edition of the Scripps  National Spelling Bee, which kicks off Tuesday night. In  that event, young spellers from around the country will  tackle considerably harder words, such as "juamave,"  "tetradrachm," and "Gesellschaft," all of which made appearances  in the final rounds of  last year's competition. 

  Americans don't seem to be googling those terms in high  volume, but they are turning to the internet for help on  simpler words — "tomorrow," "maintenance," and "schedule,"  for example. 

  Check out the graphic below:
