The spelling of a teeny, tiny dog breed appears to be giving South Carolinians the most trouble.
In honor of Scripps National Spelling Bee this week, Google shared the words misspelled most often across the country.
Google found out the most common “how to spell” searches for each state and posted them in a map.
Never miss a local story.
Though South Carolina has no issues spelling its beloved state dog, the Boykin spaniel, it needed help spelling “Chihuahua.”
To be fair, Chihuahua – which is also a state in Mexico bordering the United States – is a fairly complex word to spell at nine letters.
In a quick comparison, South Carolina appears to be doing better than its neighboring states.
Georgia needed Google’s help spelling “gray,” and North Carolina couldn’t get the angle on spelling “angel.”
Even though the sound of it is really quite atrocious, West Virginia and Connecticut wanted to know how to spell “supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” from “Mary Poppins.”
As least we’re better off than Wisconsin, which needed help spelling, well, Wisconsin.
Those interested in tuning into the National Spelling Bee can watch the finals 10 a.m. Thursday on ESPN2 and then the continuing finals at 8 p.m. on ESPN.
Maybe after today, all states will be searching how to spell “covfefe.”
