Since many of us have trouble reading, I came across this interesting tidbit that shows that it is probably easier than we think to comprehend things. Read it and let me know what you think...Alan

The following is something that was sent to me and now makes me wonder whether it really does make a difference. This is an Inertsetnig tpoic to raed...

Aoccdrnig to rsareech at an Elingsh Unervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoetnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer is in the rghit pclae. The rset can be a toatl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit a porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae we do not raed ervey lteter by istlef but the wrod as a wlohe.

Now, If only when I type something wrong, I could at least get the first and last letters right..Hope you had fun with this..Alan

That is amazing! And true ... how surprising it was to read that as though the words were spelled correctly.

Alan, that is truly amazing. It certainly makes one think, doesn't it. The fact we have the ability to recognise the meaning of a word even though it is spelt incorrectly is awesome - perhaps the context has something to do with it.

I've seen before Alan - it definitely is easy to read even though its misspelled - very interesting.

Now I remember having to retype the old English lit in University as part of my job - now that was a challenge to say the least - the f's were s's and lots more - so strange.

June inT oronto -Canada that is.

The spammers have already figured it out. Helps them avoid the spam blockers.

I hope it doesn't "catch on". I'm one of those spelling freaks,and my children and grandchildren are all good spellers, with the exception of one grandaughter, now a college freshman, (who earned a 4.0 first semester) who cannot spell worth a darn! When she started school, they had some new method,like "just do what it feels like", and it was supposed to encourage them to write, and they could learn to spell later. She never did. I demand Phonics! Mary

Mary, I know what you mean. I think the big problem is the computer and EMails where people tend to just spell things in the quickest way. The end result is that even tho it is tuff, u will not win. I am a big phonics person also but today they say "spell it like it is".
