It's interesting that the only word I had to pause and consider was 'sgtrane' = 'strange'.

After reading the first couple of senteces, you don't even notice the weird spelling.
I'd like to see a novel written like that. Could you imagine reading something like 'War and Peace' if it was written like that?

Edit:D'oh, I just found this thread:http://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/viewt......2&16 which was only made three days ago.

Actually, the explanation I had found was the following: Your brain does not actually have to read all the letters in a word to recognise it. It detects the patern, that is all. So if the letters are jumbled, except for the first and last, and no letters are missing or added, you will have no trouble reading the entire text...

Apparently, it seems to work pretty well!
