Let's have some fun ... Can you read this?

I awlyas tghuhot slpeling was ipmtorant.
I always thought spelling was important.


Acocdrnig to a reschearer at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoetnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be at the rghit pclae. The rset can be a toatl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit a porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe.



According to a researcher at Cambridge University, it doesn't matter in what order the letters in a word are, the only important thing is that the first and last letter be at 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.

Spelling?! Who needs spelling!!

Naaaah, I'm just joking with you Richard :')

Actually I'm afraid of the day when no one cares for spelling any more! It's already giving me a headache the way people write their text messages; no punctuation from any kind, so it's my mission to know where the sentence begins or ends, and I hardly find a message without spelling mistakes! I'm talking about horrible mistakes that no one should make! ;P

Our mind and our conscious mind are different things, the former being a superset of the latter.

Our mind fixes the spelling errors, or at least feeds the conscious mind with a correct result, albeit

the reading speed is decreased, and probably oxygen consumption by the  brain cells specialized in

pattern recognition arises; real time scanning using nuclear resonance could be the technology

to test this hyphotesis.

Usually this mechanism is useful, it becomes unconvinient when we have to make careful

corrections to a printed page (proof reading?) in its early form, in this case what

I devised is a simple software tool that mixes the words around the line so that

unconscious correction due to the context can't work any more.

Yes Richard, I can read it without facing difficulties. :)

In fact, It is easy to read , but difficult to pronounce. ^^

Mumtaz: I totally agree with you.
