The rset can be a taotl mses and you can sitll raed it whotuit a pboerlm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe.

I Can!! tee hee, I have a very strange ming indeed, the common misconception of people is that spelling is important once you can actually read, it only important when it comes down to the learning of construction and breaking down of words and translating the initial idea/concept of the spoken to the written. One could argue as long as you can understand it it then becomes a valid form of communication.

this is proved by the science after reading the same word again and again for a long time like your whole study period you can read a word by only recognizing the first and the last character bcoz you got the flow of the santence that suggest you which word will fit in the best here next

Scary thing is, this is how many children actually see printed word. They have to learn how to read the way we want them to , AND read the way their mind works, too. I guess I don"t have much more to add, but as someone who works to help educate learning disabled (learning differently) children, it is just really striking to see. Yes, I can read your post.

If you can read this, you have a strange mind too i couldn't believe that i could actually understand what i was reading. The phanomanal power of the human mind, according to research at Cambridge University, it doesnt matter in what order the letters in a word are, the only important thing is that the first and last letter be in the right place. The rest can be a total 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! This post is awesome and it is soo right also. I flew through this like it was all worded in order and this is some great information for all of us to know. I thank you for sharing this!! God Bless!

actualy this is a psycology thing where u can change the letters but your brain processes it as the same word because it is almost alike but not quiet. your brain sees it as a word rather than just a letter so you can read things that are jumbled and come out with the same meaning. i think it is cool.
