I love these. It's so weird that it doesn't slow me down at all.

Understandable, but I wouldn't go so far as to say easier.
Of course, it only works with words common enough to be familiar.

There are only 74 words in the English language that most of us use everyday. The rest are superfluous (superfluous isn't one of those 74 words). That's the reason why the research works because the human mind can easily remember those 74 words. :)

You must fix the last letter as well as the first. I was actually thrown there for a second.
