Tihs Mkeas Snese?

This seems to be making the rounds today:

Aoccdrnig to rscheearch at an Elingsh uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, olny taht the frist and lsat ltteres are at the rghit pcleas. The rset can be a toatl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit a porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae we do not raed ervey lteter by ilstef, but the wrod as a wlohe.

Thanks to Judi who got it from Mitch.

  1. Only should be true for people that learned to read using Whole Language (whether they know it or not). Not for those learning by phonetics. At least that's what they say. I read that extremely well. better than I thought I could...

  2. I have to admit it was remarkably easy to read that, much easier than I thought it would be. I would bargain to say that I read it not a whole lot slower than I read anything else.

  3. Wow. I could read that. Fun stuff.

  8. Well, that example isn't truly random. It looks shuffled by hand, with a heavy bias to keep letters in their respective half of the word.

    I threw together a quick Perl hack that randomizes words according to the criterions, and words longer than seven characters were more or less unreadable without major concentration.

  9. Ieednd.

    I read that surprisingly easy. That can indicate one of two things:

    1. It really doesn't matter what order the letters in a word are, as long as the first and last letters are the same.

    2. I've been reading too much Jeff K.

  10. Is there any way to leverage this for protection from automated bots -- such as spam harvesters? Obviously wouldn't work for email addresses directly, maybe to prevent content from being properly indexed?

    Hmmm... just thinking out loud.

  11. Either way, this is fun! 🙂 Impressive.

  17. Its amazing to read that as faster as i could read the normal english. But it is quite difficult to write that as fast as we could read it....
