The Most Misspelled #Words By U.S. #State

The article below piggybacks on one of my recent posts about proofreading and using spell check.

At Writer’s Relief, we enjoyed this article by NBC News that spells out the facts: There are some surprising words commonly misspelled in each state:

“Google has released its list of America’s most misspelled words by state — and Wisconsinites have some explaining to do.”

Google Trends tweeted a map on Tuesday showing America’s Most Misspelled Words, based on the top ‘how to spell’ searches in each state in 2017 so far.”
