    Yeah, having people underestimate you can be bad for the ego, but it can be great for negotiation.

    An Interesting Application Of Modern English

    We may find this individuals spelling unusual, but it is very common today for youths accustomed to texting. I know numerous youths who have very little patience with the old school accepted version of United States English. I've talked with many who claim it is an idiotic language where you need to learn numerous rules for spelling that are contradicted in the language, a common word may have many spellings/meanings, and a word having a singular spelling could have multiple meanings, etc..

    I suspect that a significant majority of the individuals reading the material understood the information in its entirety. I know I did, and I'd place appreciable odds on the majority understanding. I suspect that the majority here have seen the articles intentionally generated with atrocious spelling, where virtually everyone understands the message. It is intended to show how the mind will correctly interpret variations in spelling of common words.

    I know that personally, I and most Americans have problems with a second language, both in spelling and understanding.

    Personally, I'm impressed that his(her?) phonetic spelling is so comprehensible. Please pardon any errors in this post. JMHO :thumb:
