In honor of the 90th Annual Scripps National Spelling Bee, Google broke down by state which word residents had the most trouble spelling.

The study showed words with six to ten letters like "sauerkraut" or "dilemma" had the most spell checks on the search engine.

Michiganders were most likely to second guess their spelling of the word "pneumonia" - something three other states had trouble spelling.

Other words like "beautiful", "tomorrow" and "hallelujah" were repeatedly shown across the map.

Those living in Wisconsin had the most trouble spelling their state name, "Wisconsin."

The shortest words on the map were "liar" and "gray."
