This is a message from Chris Taylor, who's having some problems posting to
the list (and getting through to the list administrator), and asked me to
I love this (took ages to type in) -
" ... randomising letters in the middle of words [has] little or no
effect on the ability of skilled readers to understand the text. This is
easy to denmtrasote. In a pubiltacion of New Scnieitst you could
ramdinose all the letetrs, keipeng the first two and last two the same,
and reibadailty would hadrly be aftcfeed. My ansaylis did not come to
much beucase the thoery at the time was for shape and senqeuce
retigcionon. Saberi's work sugsegts we may have some pofrweul palrlael
prsooscers at work. The resaon for this is suerly that idnetiyfing
coentnt by paarllel prseocsing speeds up regnicoiton.
We only need the first and last two letetrs to spot chganes in meniang."
