Dale
You should win, as "the" is the most commonly written word in english followed by "of" with 3,860,000,000 hits.
Yet the most commonly spoken word is "I"
The word "and" is the second most commonly written word with
3,820,000,000 hits and "to" has the same as "a"

Matt, Dale, and Gary, Not that it necessarily makes any difference in the overall rankings, but all of your numbers are off because you did not include the appearance of these words in Google’s ‘GROUPS’ search (e.g. ‘of’ has 4,492,000,000 Google hits and not 3, 880,000,000) and, as far as I can tell, Google refuses to give a ‘Groups’ count on the word ‘the.’
