Thank God I spelled “misspelled” correctly. In fact, I’m kind of freaking out typing this article right now fearing that I’ll spell something wrong while writing about spelling things incorrectly. You know what? I’ll hide one misspelling in this article. If you find it you get a handful of good luck.

Word Tips is a word search site so it’s fitting that they did the research to find the most misspelled word in each and every state. Confession: it took me years to be confident enough to spell the word Massachusetts and I’ve lived here forever. I think living here gives us a little (very little) head-start to spelling bee superstardom. I was just lucky enough to get C’s on spelling quizzes.

OK, first I’ll give you the Top 10 Most Misspelled Words in the Country – then I’ll give you the most misspelled word in Massachusetts. (New England brothers and sisters I’ll give you yours too.) Ready? Let’s go!
