You must be, said the Cat, or you wouldn't have come here.

I find that some words (particularly short ones) are equally easy to read, but far from all and some are very hard to understand when the letters are rearranged.

I can read it, but neither quickly nor comfortably.

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. :)
The second sentence does not follow logically from the first.

The first sentence asserts that most of us use 74 daily. That may very well be true, but it doesn't mean that those are the only 74 words we use. We use other words as well and those words are hardly superfluous.

Thoughts of closure, type of reading, languages learned comes to mine.

First sentence easy

Second took a second look at to get.

I wonder if success at the games boggle, jumble or scrabble are directly cinixtd du dis ezzue?
