Any of you think of anything we could do with this?

The phaonmneal pweor of the hmuan mnid aoccdrnig to rescheearch at Cmabridgde uninervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoatnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be in the rghit pclae. The rset can be a taotl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit a porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lterter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe. Amzanig huh?

I'm a writer, (fiction, articles, eBooks and books on magic and mentalism, etc) and the above really explains why editors are of such importance to us. Sometimes you have a typo like that and you read the text over and over and not catch it. Very interesting.

Thank-you Parson!That may explain some of the horrendous spelling I have seen on the Café Forums.Horrendous Speller's take note:All you have to do is make sure the first and last letter's are correct! Smile
Kidding aside,this is a very interesting pnhomeonen. Rich

That was a bit harsh. He didn't claim it was new. He meerly asked if anyone had any creative ideas for using this as part of an effect.

Alex,

The fella that edits my work is Mick Ayres. I do the same thing as you wrote about.It all looks good untill he gets a hold of it!

He says I am the only person he has dealt with that just says fix it. Do what you think is correct.

And he does. Thank god.

That is great! If you read it really fast you can actually see the words spelled right.

It's amazing. My native language is not English, yet I was able to read what Parson wrote. Smile

My native language is gaelic, and strangely enough that's exactly how we spell the English words. Creepy-huh?

Here's a harebrained idea. Compose a couple of sentences in this fashion, but spell one "significant" word correctly (say, a distinctive noun used as the subject of a sentence). Ask someone to concentrate on one word. Will they tend to pick the correctly-spelled word, especially if reinforced with some semantic "weight"?

If so, you've got a word force, which gives you...

Word test, prediction. drawing dupe, Mental Epic...etc.

Crazy, eh?

BTW, the idea was inspired by a Luke Jermay method for a book test described in Building Blocks.

If you ever wind up blowing somebody's mind with something like this, gimme a shout.

I'll probably be the most amazed of all.
