Our class had a visit from a psychologist today and gave us this great piece of written english during her talk on the workings of the mind. . . . "Aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in what oredr the ltteers in a word are, the olny iprmoetnt tihng is that the frist and lsat ltteer be at the rghit pclae. The rset can be a taotl mses and you can still raed it wouthit a porbelm. This is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef but the word as a wlhoe." Pretty cool! what do you think? i will never criticise anyones grasp of the written word again!

And they worry about the literacy rates in our schools. I read that with no probs, but then again, I have learned to read backwards, upside down and a combination of the 2. No wonder my eyes need replacing! lol.

And you shoul not! From a child I practiced to read things upsided down so reading what you wrote is indeed easy. Merry Christmas!

That is true, plus written communication is overrated. In reality, 93% of communication is lost when you only communicate in a written form compared with verbal and non-verbal communication.

This test has been around for some time, the most intriguing is not that anyone can read but that we don't care much about what we are reading. The same does not occur in the spoken language.
