BATON ROUGE, La (BRPROUD)- Spelling is hard, even for the most articulate. How many “S”s are in Mississippi? Is it “there,” “their,” or “they’re”? What does “I” before “E” except after “C” even mean? Even some of the most commonly used words can make us break our pencil or keyboard as we stumble over our letters.

While the internet is full of answers to some of life’s most important questions, we’ve been asking Google to help us spell words that are both simple in some respects and complicated in others.

A recent study from AT&T Experts reviewed the top searched “how to spell” words state by state from March 2020 to March 2021 using Google Trends.
