Aoccdrnig to a rscheearch 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.

    Nothoing new in tihs. I has excatly the same inofrmtaion on my wedseit a few yaers ago. Isn't it inetrseting that a spllechceker wuoldn't be abel to cope with the missepllings, yet the hmuan brain can alomst intsanlty raed what shuold be wrtiten?

    Unfortunately it works the other way as well, I don't have the paragraph to hand but basically it's a short couple of sentences for which the reader is asked to count the number of times the word 'of' occurs. Most people will say three despite the fact it actually occurs six times, this is because as people manage to assume the right order of letters for the word, they also assume the existence of the word 'of' in this yse that they're not even aware it is there.

    The computer on the other hand with basically no idea of context will give the right answer every time.


    Don't tell my 6 year old daughter, I have enough trouble getting her to spell as it is..if she thinks 'well I know the first letter and the last that'll do'... the teacher won't be pleased....
