The clue is to try and read this fluently as if you had a correctly spelled text in front of you. I tried to do this that way, and it actually came out much faster than when I focused on each word separately, trying to decipher it... Now, I finally know what psychologists are good for... Would be interesting if someone wrote an entire book this way, not?
Thx to my great pal Shaun B. for sending me this one... on my third anniversary of this blog!
