Back in the stone age, when I was learning how to read, we were taught to recognize the shapes of the words as well as using phoenetics to help with the pronounciation. It's amazing how the brain is able to process that kind of information.

I could read this very easily. Of course to read this you do have to know what letters are used in any given word.
