Cnduolt 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! if you can raed tihs rpsoet it.

So, they stress spelling in school, but uh, doesn't appear to really matter that much once you get a comprehensive vocabulary. interesting...

it really does matter, because it keeps you from reading stuff over again.

I think it matters on a professional level but in this case, eh, not really.

Yeah, I've seen that before too, or a similar instance. That is pretty neat. But for words like "snipes" and "spines" ...hard to tell sometimes. I can't think of any other similarly-spelled words right now; there are some better ones.

I think you'd be able to tell the difference between the words given what the sentence is about.

Yeah I'm not sure if it works with any language, but at least works with some other languages. And well, I guess your brain look at it the same way no matter which language it is.
