It's spelling bee week! Google mapped out top "how to spell" searches by state. Google

NEW YORK -- As the 2017 Scripps National Spelling Bee gets underway, Google has decided to honor the annual event by compiling a list of the most misspelled words in the country.

Their list is based on top searched "how to spell" words by state in 2017, and is categorized by how many letters in each word were misspelled. Apparently, folks in Georgia had a tough time spelling "gray" while residents of Wisconsin had problems spelling their own state.

Some of the top misspelled words include:

  • Supercali...
  • Maintenance
  • Diamond
  • Beautiful
  • Surprise
  • Banana
  • Available
  • Sense
  • College
  • Disease
  • Quote
  • Delicious
  • Tomorrow
  • License
  • Angel

If you're curious to see how your state ranks in comparison to others, take a look at Google's map.
