WASHINGTON (WUSA9) - What were the most challenging words to you growing up?
On Tuesday, in honor of the Scripps' National Spelling Bee, Google Trends released a map with the most misspelled word in each state - based off Google searches.
All three of the DMV's most challenging words were six to 10 letters, but certainly summon suppressed memories of sixth grade spelling exams.
D.C.: Ninety. Where exactly does the 'e' go? And why are D.C. residents so interested in this integer?
Maryland: Special. Seemingly harmless, but misspelled adjectives were a common theme this year.
Virginia: Delicious. There are some tricky vowels here.
And an honorable mention to Wisconsin, who forgot how exactly to spell Wisconsin this year.
