A reading test. Do you need the letters of a word to be in order to know the word?

While an lodey, tihs is ptrtey dogo. Hwveeor, I do qtsiouen the vctreaiy of the escruoe. If we ispcent the mgsease ceollsy, the lgnseot wdros hpeapn to be flariy cmomon wdros taht are elsaiy rtleead to rrsceeah. Wchih rsaeis the igrtniiung qtseioen of waht wluod ouccr if we wree to mkae use of rrear wdros? Tkae for elpxmae, the fcat taht I lkie to paly wtih wrods. So, wehn Mtfsrcooi's Dail Up Nnkrwtioeg prgraom strtas to mkae a ctcnnoieon, I asmlot aywlas say, "Vniyfliiig Ulseess Nmae and Prwssoad."

Slava, your example is harder than the one I sent. It took some untangling of some of the words and I didn't recognize all of them at first sight.

Aye, that's why I posted it. It's a rebuttal to the original. I first wrote that, according to my records, in 2003, which is why I consider it an old one. Though I must admit, I should have called it an lodei.

As I understand it, the rule says the first and last letters must be correct, but you can jumble within. Slava's text does not consistently follow that rule. For instance, his last word lodei should read o...e with ldi in any order in between.
