The Brain creates order even in foreign languages

Post by Davide » Sat Apr 30, 2011 9:11 pm

I don't know how many native English speakers have seen those texts where all the letters apart from the first and last are jumbled up as an illustration of how the brain is still able to process the words intelligibly. I found this short text in Italian which does exactly the same thing, and I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to read. Give it a try :-)

I am one of those people that finds it difficult to read that as I process every single letter in the word .
