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.

Are you talking about your question or the image? I've heard this before, it is fairly interesting. What is that picture all about?

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.

I'm glad to find out that spelling isn't as important as my teachers used to tell me it was. Amazing what the mind can do.

Yes, everyone who is familiar with english language can read that, not only 55 people. It's true, as long as in a word frist and lsat letter are in the right place text is readable.

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!

Cool..I read it without any problem. You will have to read first 3-4 words carefully..then it is easy because of common sense and language.

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.
