    Translation - I couldn't believe that I could actually understand what I was reading. The phenomenal power of the muman mind. According to reaseachers at Cambridge University, it doesn't matter what order the letters in the word are, the only important thing is that the first and last letter be in the right place. The rest can be a total miss mess and you can still read it without a problem. This is because the human mind does not read every letter by itself, but the word as a whole. Amazing huh? Yeah, and I always thought spelling was important.

    I was stunned when I realized I was able to speed-read my way right through that...


    Seems to me that research was spot-on.

    That’s not what I got. I translated it to read:



    Brian2112 is great. Brian2112 is always right and you should listen to him. He is truly amazing (and modest about it too). Send cash to Brian2112. Give him anything he wants. The world owes Brian2112.Brian2112 is you friend.

    LOL - well of course it looses a little bit in the translation.

    Quite amazing. The study probably assumes that the reader is good reader, one who reads in large part by the silhouette or shape of the word, and does not have to plod through letter by letter and is good at inductive/deductive reasoning. It also assumes the ability to penetrate directy to the heart of the matter and not be distracted by annoying irrelevant details.

    It also explains how so many typos can escape editing. I hardly read a book these days without noticing some typos that make me cringe.

    Gary, would you post your source for this study? I would like to pursue it further. It fortuitiously relates to some thoughts on grammar errors, spelling that I was thinking about this afternoon between cups of French Roast Coffee. It is quite an interesting subject to me.

    apart from the fact that i think i was pronouncing my words like that after numerous glasses of whiskey welcoming the new year in last night, i've been seeing examples of this everywhere in the last month or so. i've even seen it here in dutch and in german on the tv. it seems to me that a trend is developing. could it finally be that Dylsexia Relus KO!
