  6. yep, i could read it no problemo (except for two words). i find this really interesting, because there are a lot of people in my family that are dyslexic. i wonder if they could read this too... hmmm...

  7. Yes, I could read it. Is there a barometer to tell me exactly how strange my mind is, because that would be totally cool.

  8. It's itnerstenig isn't it? I love that. Cool how our mind works.

  9. It's so true. So why do we rely so heavily on phonics to teach kids how to read?

  10. I totally could read that whole thing!!!! So cool! =)

  11. This is very cool! However, I am an English teacher and this won't cut it in my class. Sorry!

  12. Isn't it so cool?! I did this with my students once. I think it's lots of fun. :-)

  13. I could read it. I guess that means I have a strange mind, lol.

    Have a great day, Lenny!

  14. Ha - so cool! How hard was this to WRITE? Probably harder than reading it.

  15. The human brain is an incredible thing. There's no limit to the things it can do.

  17. Lenny this must have taken you forever to do!!! I love this post! So creative!!! It seems I'm strange (go figure)!

  18. Since I'm a reading teacher in my "non-writer" life, I can tell you that yes, this is totally true and proven in many different studies. The brain has a funny way of reading, once you are a proficient reader.

    A very young student just learning to read would not be able to read your blog post, but experienced readers can because our brains are just scanning the letters and using our common sense and understanding of the language to fill in the words.

    Amazing, isn't it!

    And I agree with Jen -- this must have taken forever for you to type up!

  20. It's so strange that our brains can decipher odd spellings for us. We're amazing creatures!! Hey, Lenny, I'm so glad I was able to fix the problem on my blog and you can visit again. I love seeing your happy sun over there!!

  21. Hi, Lenny! I have a blog award for you. :-)

  22. I have seen that before, and it's very cool! I admit, I had to stop and thing about the word "slelinpg". My mind wanted to read "sleeping" instead of "spelling" . . . but maybe that's because I really want sleep! :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. That is really interesting. You just made a work day less terrible. thanks!

  24. Hey Lenny, stop my blog, I gave you an award. www.my-poetry-place.blogspot.com

  25. So that's what it feels like to be dyslectic. That would really suck! On the other hand, that does remind me of my spelling sometimes. ;)

  26. Dude! That toatalyl blwos my mind! I have heard of "whole word" reading before, as a way to teach kids how to read, but this takes it to a whole different level. The brain is an amazing thing. :)

  27. Hi Lenny! I just came over from Shannon's blog.

    Great post- I used to teach psychology and this was one of the fun things I'd show in class. The human mind is pretty darn nifty!

    ReplyDelete
  28. That's pretty cool. I can read every word:)

  29. I've seen this before and it's true. I was able to read thru your post quickly and comprehend it with no problem.
    Re your questions about A to Z, if you want some examples of how it works check my posts for April 2010 or those of most of the bloggers listed on my sidebar. You can literally post about anything in any way--just theme each post to a letter in the alphabet.
    Join us! It will be fun.

    hope you're having a great week, Lenny!

  31. I think it must be true, because I could read your post just fine. But I'm not going to tell my kids - they'll stop studying their spelling words! :)

  32. That was a fun brain exercise! I feel a little dizzy, but otherwise I could read everything you wrote!

  33. Ley Henny, I mean Hey Lenny,:-)

    Hugs and smiles from Gr.Mary, whoops, Mr. Gary :-)
