where does the "55 people out of 100 can" come from?

Also - we took a look at this in school... you can make that same statement MUCH more difficult to read if you rearrange the letters "better" while still leaving the first and last letters in the correct place. Obviously, as the length of the word increases, so CAN the difficulty if you don't put letters near to where they are supposed to be.

Advanced readers see the shape of the word as much as they see the letters that make it up, while less advanced readers assemble the component parts of the word.

Context plays a huge part, too. I saw "taws" in J.4knee's post above, and because "'twas" is not a commonly used word any more, I had to spend some time figuring it out.

That is why many people find grammatical errors so irritating. The use of there i/o their, your i/o you're, etc. causes the reader to stop to analyze what really is being said. Editors exist for that very reason. Publishers don't want to annoy there readers.

The use of "there" i/o "their" causes you to wander. Write?

Right, "wonder." [:)]

Don't feel badly. Other languages are even worse.
