yeah .. saw a different sentence like this before.

I believe there are people who can read whole sentences this way .. I mean get the gist of the sentence by skimming over it ..

Nice post, and I guess the article is right about being able to read.

Except, I didn't quite get the 'silene' word above!

My 2 cents.

I feel it is not only the word that the mind is reading, but it already is expecting the right words before reading. why not read the following words and tell me whether you were able to read them. They are not big words mind you.

1) ahcirac

2) tlifre

3) mulbme

4) tirknet

The order theory of letters for a word is not strictly the only reason i feel.


Ur mind wants to read the most common wrds that it already knows or is looking for the sequence of words subconsciously.


cheers
