It's a common word, but there is one tricky letter combination that trips us up regularly enough that we have to ask Google for help.

Oh, and what's with Oklahoma?  Along with South Dakota and Wisconsin, they have trouble spelling the word "gray."  They must have seen 50 Shades of Grey too many times.
