If memory serves, this is the 3rd time in the history of this bbs that this has been posted.

And it's not for smart people, it's for anyone who's literate. So that's everybody but the Brits.

i got that by mail in spanish. I could read it faster in my language than that one in english you posted. My english is not the best, but it's pretty decent... Seems like foreign languages make it slower to read for each person.

I couldn't believe that I could actually understand what I was reading. The phenomenal power of the humand mind, accordnig to a research at Cambridge University , it doesn't matter in what order the letters in a word are, the only important hing is that the first and last letter be in the right place. The rest can be total mess and you can still read it without a problem. This is because the humand mind does not read every letter by itself, but the word as whole. Amazing huh? Yeah and I always thought spelling was important!

Kndia fnnuy, I kenw it was giong to be auobt tihs borefe I raed it.

I can't read it. Atleast not straight through perfectly, certain words messed me up beyond belief. "actually" "thought" I had to reread like 4 or 5 times. I read every letter individually; fuck you, Cambridge.

if you read it fast, like screen it, it's a piece of cake. you don't actually look at the words, you just read them like you would read normally. when reading a book, you don't gaze at every word one by one, you just know what it says & move on.

Actually, I look at every letter whether I'm reading,writing, or even typing. Just habit, I don't even think about it. I know if I've made a mistake while tying because my eyes won't follow the rest of the word.

reading the first words, you know you have to screen & not see every letter seperately. I mean, that's how it works for me. having read the first 'word', I went through the post screening.

God knows what you tried to write there, imbecile. "Pig latin" surely is too advanced for you.




EDIT: THis only works with words that are already in the memory, right?

Pre -I'd say so. or else it'd be impossible, I imagine.

& indeed, I agree. (first line of your post)

The same here. When I read that in spanish I didn't realized that the words were messed until I got the end, then I got like WTF?.

But this time I had some problems with it.

I agree with Preocupado, it's like when you are reading something interesting, and you are going really fast, and then suddenly you get to a word you had never seen before and you get lost in the complete sentence and you have to read it again. This must me the same, you associate the letters with some word and the context.

Belen sent me the spanish mail & if I recall right we had a discussion on reading learning methods. I don't get lost when there's a word I can't comprehend coz I was raised on the syllabic method apparently...

I feel so...insignificant for not being able to read that. My 11 year old sister could read it faster than I could.

Maybe it's because you read in a different form. Some people just sees the word and it's enough to get it and so they read faster than other ones that have to go much more slow. Just practice. I'm doing that. I read lots more slowly a year ago, but I started trying not to read like if I was loud reading (is this well expressed? I mean, as if you were reading-speaking for an audience...) It works. I read much more fast now, even though much people reads faster than I do... Try...

I still read faster than almost everyone I know while looking at every letter. It's not like I take a lot of time, I look over the words just as fast, I just register each letter as a seperate entity almost.

Wow, I wasn't able to do that! Then it must be more or less the same that I do... Lucky you, I have to practice to go faster... :[
