As it turns out, quite a few objectively easy-to-spell words are giving lots of people trouble in places like Alabama, where "cousin" is the top-searched word. Meanwhile, in Rhode Island, quite a few Googlers are apparently having a tough time correctly spelling "dying." However, the most alarming revelation here is that a whole bunch of residents in 11 different states can't figure out "beautiful." Seriously.
Granted, there are also a number of fairly tough-to-spell words that appear on the map. For instance "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" shows up as the top-searched word in six different states. Also, the complicated French term "hors d'oeuvres" is the top query in Florida. Yet the rest of the map is dotted with phonetically obvious words like "chaos," "gray," and "probably."
