Why None of Us are Spelling well

By CBramkamp creative writing 1 Comment on Why None of Us are Spelling well

This was circulating around my CWC Redwood writers group:

Do you have a strange mind?

if you can raed this, you have a sgtrane mnid too. Can you raed this? Olny plepoe with srtagne mnids can. I cdnuolt blveiee that I cluod aulaclty uesdnatnrd what I was rdanieg. The phaonmneal pweor of the hmuan mnid, aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it dseno’t mtaetr in what oerdr the ltteres in a word are, the olny iproamtnt tihng is that the frsit and last ltteer be in the rghit pclae.

The rset can be a taotl mses and you can still raed it whotuit a pboerlm. This is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the word as a wlohe. Azanmig huh? yaeh and I awlyas tghuhot slpeling was ipmorantt!

It gets even worse when you can read so fast, you take in whole sentences and paragraphs (the only way to power through War and Peace).  So slow down, or at least we can all cut each other some slack.Image
