|Abstract:||Two years ago, a widely circulated statement on the Internet claimed that resarceh at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy fuond that sentecnes in whcih lettres weer transpsoed (or jubmled up), as in the setnence you are now raeding, were easy to read and that letter position in words was not important to the ability to read successfully. In actuality, the statement was a hoax in that no such research had been conducted at the University of Cambridge (see http://www.mrc-cbu.cam.ac.uk/personal/matt.davis/Cmabrigde/). We report here results from a study showing that although some variations of sentences with transposed letters are relatively easy to read, other variations are not, and that there is generally always a cost associated with reading words with transposed letters.|
