Hello :)

I would like somebody to help me with this... I found

Hockey is most popular in North America, in…in… Canada but also very popular in the northern part of the U.S.A. …erm…the boarder states.

First I thought it was a mistake but then I googled -boarder states- and I found some information, so I would like to know if -boarder states- really exists, if they are some specific states, or if it is only a mistake and it means -border-

Thank you very much in advance for your help :)

    It should be "border states." "Boarder states" would be states that housed boarders, I suppose, if such a thing existed. As far as I know, it doesn't, unless someone is making an oblique reference to migrant workers.

    Yes, it sounds like a misspelling to me, too. There are border states with Canada and border states with Mexico, but I have never heard of boarder states.
