English Handwriting

1. George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950) believed that FISH could be spelled GHOTI according to English handwriting: gh sometimes sounds f, as in cough; o may sound i, as in women; and ti may sound sh as in cautious!!!

2. Try how easily you can read and understand the following passage:

i cdnuolt blveiee taht i cluod aulaclty uesdnatnrd waht i was rdanieg. The phaonmneal pweor of the hmuan mnid, aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it dseno't mtaetr in waht oerdr the ltteres in a wrod are, the olny iproamtnt tihng is taht the frsit and lsat ltteer be in the rghit pclae.The rset can be a taotl mses and you can sitll raed it whotuit a pboerlm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe.
