The Words We Can't Spell...According to Google Searches

Do you ever google a word just to find out how to spell it? Turns out lots of us do . . .


Someone looked at google search stats to find the most common words we struggle to spell. Here are the top ten . . .


1.  Restaurant. We google the spelling an average of 95,000 times a month. The part that trips a lot of us up is the "A-U" in the middle.  (R-E-S-T-A-U-R-A-N-T)


2.  Pneumonia. There's a silent "P", and an "E-U" in there.  (P-N-E-U-M-O-N-I-A)


3.  Appreciate. People forget how many "P's" there are, and whether there's a "C" or an "S" halfway through.  (A-P-P-R-E-C-I-A-T-E)


4.  Receipt. Remember, it's "I" before "E" except after "C."  (R-E-C-E-I-P-T)


5.  Beautiful. Tough because it's got three vowels in a row.  (B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L)


6.  Niece. People can't remember if it's an "I-E" or an "E-I".  (N-I-E-C-E)


7.  Maintenance. We forget where the "A's" and "E's" go.  (M-A-I-N-T-E-N-A-N-C-E)


8.  Bougie.  (pronounced booj-ee) Like, "You bought the expensive champagne? Wow, you're so bougie."  (B-O-U-G-I-E)


9.  Diarrhea. You don't have to know how to spell it to have it.  (D-I-A-R-R-H-E-A)


10.  Congratulations. We google it a lot, partly because we write it on Facebook so much.  (C-O-N-G-R-A-T-U-L-A-T-I-O-N-S)
