A study concerned human perception are something within that realm .
The researchers displayed text that was missing all the vowels and possibly other letters .

They found that only 40% of test subjects were able to read it without a struggle , the other 60% took forever to read the thing , or saw " chicken scratch " , it might as well be a foreign language.
It seems the former group's brains somehow simply filled in the blanks for them as they read the text .

So PG , give these folks a break , they are of the 60% .

You aren't removing the vowels, you are entirely changing the spelling and syntax.


Is that a challenge ?

No.

English isn't the seccond language in my country, but it's my seccond language, as well.
Ok, I haven't finished the English course yet, and I'm not fluent, but I can understand you very well, even when you use pirate speek. By the way, I'm trying to learn it!

I don't have a problem, but English is my best language (not my first though). The above is a dam sight easier than pirate speak though!
I've actually done a similar exercise in class and most students could read it if it wasn't a new word. (how much you mess it up does have an effect though i think, the version below is harder to read, or no? I moved one letter in each word whenever I could)
