If all but the first and last letters are scrambled, you can still read the word, so say Cambridge researchers.

Scrambled Words

Supposedly*, researchers at Cambridge University have concluded that it doesn't matter what order the letters of a word are in; as long as the first and last letters are in the proper place, you can scramble the rest of the word however you like, and it's still readable.

Want to try it out? Just type a sentence below, and find out what it looks like, scrambled!

Be sure to use plenty of big words to make it more interesting; shorter words don't get jumbled too much (and words of two or three letters don't get jumbled at all, right?)

* I say "supposedly" because - as far as I know - this research was never done by researchers at Cambridge or anywhere else. Just because you see something on the internet doesn't mean it's true. In fact, finding something on the internet may very well be convincing evidence of its invalidity!
