Re: Eccles Rant - No Answers?
| Spelling no problem, most of us have an auto edit function when it comes = | to not quite correct and skip right past it. It turns out this is quite literally true. There was a study of the readability of misspelled (mispeled?) words last year, and the main conclusion was that as long as the first and last letter of each word (or maybe two for longer words) are correct, most people can read garbled text quite easily. So "ecclestiaclial" and "ecclesiastical" look the same to most of us, unless we take a closer look.
