Bueatiful Banannas: America's Most Commonly Misspelled Words

America has no official language. 

This makes a lot of sense when you consider that our country's most-used language, English, is one full of words that Americans just can't spell.

In honor of the upcoming National Spelling Bee, Google has released each state's most misspelled word. And since Google is reading your searches, emails, IMs and texts, Google ought to know!

The most commonly misspelled words are 'beautiful' and 'pneumonia,' with five states each having trouble with those. 

Perhaps the most puzzling inclusion is 'supercalifragilisticexpialidocious,' which is most misspelled in West Virginia and Connecticut. A better way to say that may be that supercalifragilisticexpialidocious is most-attempted in those states. Why? We haven't the foggiest idea.

People in New Jersey can't spell 'twelve,' apparently. People in South Dakota can't spell 'college,' which makes sense. Speaking of...people in Oregon can't spell 'sense'!
