Can you read this?

I started the Hall of Misspelling Shame discussion & just saw this on EF member, and my friend, Kenzie's Facebook page. I thought it too cool to have it get lost in the other thread, so I wanted to give it it's own!

Isn't it interesting how well the human brain can cope with things? I remember there was a school of thought based on this where they tried to teach children to read through word recognition, not phonics. It didn't work too well, because you are always encountering words that are new & need a way to sound them out. However, it's really cool to see it illustrated like this!

What will still throw me off though, is spacing. If there's no space between the words, I need an additional moment to understand it.

I've seen this kind of thing plenty of times before. I could read it but for some reason "pweor" made me pause to figure it out.

I did read this easily. My hubby suggested my dyslexic tendencies actually were an advantage since I do have to un-puzzle the letter/words normally--and am used to it.

I never saw this before, but since it's natural for the brain to work this way, I'm sure most people can read it.

I thought there had to be some others who hadn't already seen it

Yes I can, it seemed so natural to, almost easier then properly spelt words. Weird, very weird!

GONE! GONE!
Apparently it's possible to read almost any word as long as the first and last letters are correct. This says a lot about how the human mind works when it's reading. So cool!

Apparently the people who have a more difficult time reading this are ones for whom English is not their native tongue.

No problem reading it here, I always found images like this sort of fascinating actually.
I guess even a brain has to take shortcuts eventually, right? xD
I'd say it's almost like how you can save a little room on your memory cards by zipping some of the files.

I could read it. I always like these things. My dad once sent me a printed out letter with no spaces, so I would take the time to read it all the way through. lol

I've seen something similar to this several times before. I can read it easily, although I find myself itching to edit it as I read!

I could read it without a problem. But...I think my teeth hurt now from gritting them from annoyance seeing that many spelling errors! XD

Easily, when you walk around with an e-reader pressed to your nose you get a lot of practice filing in the blanks.

I can read parts of it but I definately have to look at the words to tell how they are mispelled to read it
