I cluod not blveiee taht I cluod aulaclty uesdnatnrd waht I was rdanieg. The phaonmneal pweor of the hmuan mnid. Aoccdrnig to a rscheearch sudty at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoatnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be in the rghit pclae. The rset can be a taotl 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. Amzanig huh? Yaeh and I awlyas thgouht slpeling was ipmorantt.

Nice jm2hill

I got you interested in how the brain works. You and others interested should read this:

Fun reading, and just takes a minute!

Hehehe... looks like we need a few more cues than just the terminal characters to read scrambled words quickly :) Cool...

That was kind of funny, I read the initial post only slightly slower than normal. On the other hand I gave up on jm2hills post after seeing this lcitsiugnis which is the fifth word.

I guess other people have figured it out already, but that study was actually contested.

"According to card-carrying linguistics professionals at an unnamed university in British Columbia, and contrary to the dubious claims of the uncited research, a simple, mechanical inversion of internal characters appears sufficient to confuse the everyday onlooker."
