Our minds evolved as pattern recognizers. I bet you'd have a hard time recognizing the meaning of the paragraph if you changed the ordering of the words within the sentences. I wonder if that task would be made easier if you were fluent in many languages and consequently were experienced in dealing with different syntax.

I got a question for you wordy word guys.

 

In other languages than English, are the words for "orange", the fruit, and "orange", the color, the same?

spling spling: gaudy cheap ass jewelery from walmart seen on white trash teenagers.

or maybe neon colored slings like that were popular in the 80s.

I'm inclined to think that it's not so much reordering the letters in the scrambled word as it is simply filling in the blanks. You could probably lose some words in the sentence and still convey the meaning. If you possess any vocabulary, your mind will complete the sentence. If you're dealing with a larger word that taken out of its context, then it'll be more difficult. Alan Watts' had one of these words in "The Wisdom of Insecurity - A Message for an Age of Anxiety." Here's what he says:

 

"Take for example the anagram POCATELDIMC. You can work over these letters for hours, trying system after system of rearrangement in order to discover the scrambled word. Try, instead, just looking at the anagram with a relaxed mind, and in a very short space of time you brain will deliver the answer without the slightest effort."

 

I couldn't get relaxed enough, so I cheated with a word unscrambler.
