Yes, but then I already know how to read and have been doing it for decades.

One of the things so-called "linguists" try to do with things like this is "prove" that language is innate, and that we don't really have to teach our children "proper" grammar and spelling, because the inherent power of our minds means we can "read" crap like that and extract the meaning for it.

Of course, when they write the papers and books espousing this bullshit, they do it in perfectly spelled grammatically correct English.

To be fair, Noam Chomsky is a big hypocrite in a lot of other ways than just linguistics.

Spelled like a true Arfcommer!


(It is a neat mind-trick, though.)
