Does Spelling Matter?

fi yuo cna raed tihs, yuo hvae a sgtrane mnid too


This is floating around the Internet and I thought it was interesting. I thought of my old high school English teachers and how much they would not appreciate it! In addition to requiring the first and last letter to be correct, the number of letters in each word and punctuation must also be correct. Also very helpful is the number of three letter words used.


Cna yuo raed tihs? Olny 55 plepoe out of 100 can.

I cdnuolt blveiee taht I cluod aulaclty uesdnatnrd waht I was rdanieg. The phaonmnealpweor of the hmuan mnid, aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it dseno'tmtaetr in waht oerdr the ltteres in a wrod are, the olny iproamtnt tihng is taht the frsit and lsat ltteer be in the rghit pclae. The rset can be a taotl mses and you can sitll raed it whotuit a pboerlm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe. Azanmig huh? yaeh and I awlyas tghuhot slpeling was ipmorantt! if you can raed tihs forwrad it
