What Word Does Your State Most Often Misspell?

Even if you're a reasonably good speller, you probably periodically need a little help and Google is a great place to get it. Since everyone uses a Google search for spelling help now and again, it's not surprising they eventually compiled the data and made a fun chart out of it showing what words each state needs the most help with.

Here in my native California, we apparently need a lot of help with "desert," which is hardly surprising considering everyone is worried about the drought all the time. So what words does your state misspell the most?

You can see the whole graphic on Google's Twitter.

Most places one types (browser, e-mail, document writer, etc.) have automatic spell checking if not autocorrect. I think these were items entered in a Google search for information, not just to check spelling.
