TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- Google Trends is known for sometimes giving us interesting information that we never really thought about.

They're at it again.

Google Trends recently revealed the most misspelled word in each state based on how many people prefaced a word with the phrase "how to spell" in a Google search.

Florida's most misspelled word was "tomorrow" while "appreciate" was the word that seems to give Georgia the most trouble.

Google tweeted out a map featuring the most misspelled word in all 50 states late last week in honor of the National Spelling Bee.

Some other notable misspellings?

The most commonly misspelled words were 'cancelled' and 'desert.'

Some states have trouble spelling what seem like rather easy words. Texas can't seem to spell "niece," Colorado and New York can't spell "beautiful," Vermont has trouble with "possible," while Michigan, South Dakota, Oklahoma struggle with "gray."

Some other states seem to be more concerned with searching for that pot o' gold. Namely Utah and Arkansas, who really want to know how to spell 'leprechaun."

Some states are just plain hungry. Ohio, former home to the Chiquita headquarters, has trouble with "banana." New Jersey seems to struggle with "croissant." Also, eat your vegetables, Minnesota! Your most misspelled word is "broccoli."

Then there's Massachusetts, which can't spell... yes, you guessed it... "Massachusetts."
