Wyoming City The Hardest To Spell In The US? REALLY?
Worse than Vedauwoo? No, it can’t be.
A new study found the hardest American city to spell is:
Meeteetse,Wyoming. (It's pronounced "Muh-TEET-see")
An Ipsos survey, these are theU.S.cities ranked by the percentage misspelled:
Meeteetse, WY – Misspelled by 70% of respondents
Kaumalapau,HI– Misspelled by 69% of respondents
Saguache,CO – Misspelled by 68% of respondents
Skaneateles,NY – Misspelled by 67% of respondents
Champaign,IL – Misspelled by 63% of respondents
Pflugerville,TX – Misspelled by 63% of respondents
Worcester,MA – Misspelled by 62% of respondents
Ketchikan,AK – Misspelled by 61% of respondents
Winnemucca,NV – Misspelled by 60% of respondents
Aquebogue,NY – Misspelled by 56% of respondents
Personally, I would have gone with some Wisconsin names. Ashwaubenon, Fon Du Lac, Ixonea, KauKauna. It was hell when I moved there for my first full time radio job.
Meeteetse? That’s nothing!
