Does spelling really matter?

Several people have sent me this message, so I thought I’d pass it along to you. I suspect the proposed hypothesis is true for fluent readers and for shorter words. See what I mean by clicking on “more”.

Aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at an Elingsh uinervtisy, it deosn’t mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoetnt tihng is taht frist and lsat ltteer is at the rghit pclae. The rset can be a toatl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae we do not raed ervey lteter by it slef but the wrod as a wlohe.
