    According to information theory, written English is about 50% redundant. You could strike out every other letter and replace it with noise # characters and the result would usually be understandable. Lots of clues – keeping the first letter in place and preserving breaks between words reduces the number of choices tremendously, (see how krystie’s above is much harder to decipher) there are only so many 2&3-letter words, etc. So we can just rip thru it with heuristic guesses. Lip-readers can even pull English out of just watching a mouth shape the relatively few basic phonemes. If English -spoken or written- had no redundancy, the smallest errors or channel noise would wipe the meaning. English’s redundancy helps Morse code and radio comms tremendously. We are even learning to do this with computer code. Why say, say again? (retransmit packet) when we can fill in the lost bits with iterated guessing trees at 2Ghz in a known context framework? Just don’t ask me to code that tree…
