Spainish or Spansih (for Spanish)

The Spanish team has won the World Cup. It feel like Americans paid much more attention to the tournament this year than they have in the past. We also need to pay attention to how we spell the nationality of the winners. It is easy to forget that the language is not spelled the same way as the country and type Spainish, which appears in the C, or moderate, probability section of the Ballard list. I also found Spansih, which is a simple reversal of the last two letters. Let's be champions and clean up this error in our catalogs.
