I happened upon the following paragraph and would like to share it with you. Enjoy!
i cdnuolt blveiee taht I cluod aulaclty uesdnatnrd waht I was rdanieg. The phaonmneal pweor of the hmuan mnid, aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it dseno’t mtaetr in waht oerdr the ltteres in a wrod are, the olny iproamtnt tihng is taht the frsit and lsat ltteer be in the rghit pclae. 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. Azanmig huh? yaeh and I awlyas tghuhot slpeling was ipmorantt!
So my question is, are there languages whose writing is so different that this does not work? Apparently it is not just English, but what about languages with completely different types of symbols- how does such an ability work in a language like that?
Brilliant! Blirllaint! Bairllaint! Birlliaint!
I guess the trick is of being the first and the last letters in place and something in the middle.
