    I assume it would, but I don't know. The source was just this quote. Nothing more.

    Hmmm...so what's the point, really? Is idiocy (conveyed through poor language usage and spelling) the next "in" thing? icon_twisted.gif And yeah, as chungo44 pointed out, this is old news. *yawns*

    caslon> waht aoubt smieitc laugnaegs?

    How easily can you read this:

    אדם נכנס למוזיאון השואה בוואשינגטון ופתח באש; שלושה נפגעו, בהם היורה


    (In the next post, I'll scramble the letters. (: )

    The answer, actually, is likely to be "no". Words tend to be shorter, based on 3 consonants - and absent the vowels. So if you switch around the order of the consonants... you're changing the meaning of the word.

    Thank you! Finally somebody who can hold an intelligent conversation.

    I figured this from my limited knowledge of Semitic languages from The Unfolding of Language....which gives an interesting explanation of how those consonantal templates evolved.

    "...As entertaining as it is erudite, The Unfolding of Language moves nimbly from ancient Babylonian to American idiom, from the central role of metaphor to the staggering triumph of design that is the Semitic verb, to tell the dramatic story and explain the genius behind a uniquely human faculty."
