I apologize for any misspelled words and grammatical errors you see in my posts. (I already had two corrections in my first sentence, thank you Spell Check). Well some researchers at Cambridge University discovered that our brains are so good at reading and solving puzzles, that we can easily read misspelled words:
I think this is how my brain sees all words, as a symbol rather than looking at each individual letter and noticing the spelling. So when I try to write, I sound out the word in my head. And thanks to learning improper English, it’s very difficult to spell correctly.
Now that I work for a company who puts a lot of emphasis on proper written communication (YES I took a spelling test for my current position as an engineer and one of the founders was an editor of an English dictionary and he was from Germany) well I have learned so much more working here than I did in school. But it’s been a lot of work, and not has necessarily reformed my puzzle solving mind.
