Very took a bit longer, but I didn't have any trouble reading the whole message. I think the findings of that study are definitely true.

Wow, I could understand everything in the first post without even hesistating once! Though you do bring up the problem of stops and spots.

Probably context like READ and READ (present, past).

I've just ordered a copy of Hnery Flinedig's Tom Jneos from Aomzan written in this very style. I'll let you know how I get on.

I had no trouble to read. Strange, I never thought about that. What about other languages?
