Ever wondered what words your fellow Canadians are struggling to spell? Google (as usual) has the answers.
Google Canada tweeted a map of Canada’s spelling woes last week, following Google Trends’ May 30th release of the United States’ most misspelled words.

Cascadians appear to have more than a landscape in common, with both Washingtonians and British Columbians unable to spell pneumonia.
Albertans, strangely, sought the most help with “supercalifragilisticexpialidocious”. Perhaps beneath the province’s stampedes and oil sands, there’s a soft spot for Disney classics.
Other notable words include Ontario’s “colour” (presumably their presence beneath the 49th parallel has led to some confusion about dropping the “u”), New Brunswick’s workout-centric “elliptical”, and the Northwest Territories’ “facetious”.
