Which Words South Dakotans, Minnesotans & Iowans Look Up the Most
I like to think I'm a fairly good speller, but I still find myself using Dictionary.com on an almost daily basis. I end up checking on words that vex me sometimes like - - recommend, accommodate, and separate.
Thankfully I'm not the only one who uses this resource, and because of that Dictionary.com has rounded up the most used words for each of the 50 states.
What are the most looked-up words in our tri-state area? They're certainly an interesting trio of words.
In South Dakota, the word people looked up the most was - centennial. Centennial is defined as "pertaining to, or marking the completion of, a period of 100 years; pertaining to a 100th anniversary." Like a centennial farm.
In Minnesota, the most looked-up word was - trudge. Trudge's definition is "to walk, especially laboriously or wearily".
For Iowans, the word they searched out the most was - fluid. Fluid's definition is, "a substance, as a liquid or gas, that is capable of flowing and that changes its shape at a steady rate when acted upon by a force tending to change its shape".
While I found these words interesting, they weren't nearly as strange as what other states were looking up. For example, in Georgia, they were looking up - - "pseudopod". New Yorkers were wondering what "limerence" was and Nevadans were checking out the term "natural hat trick".
For definitions of those words and spelling help too, you can always check out Dictionary.com.
