Words, Retina and Reading

After reading this quote by Susan Okie be sure to praise God for His amazing creation.

“Presented with a word’s image on the retina, average readers of English can, within a few 10ths of a second, match it with one of 50,000 or more words stored in their mental dictionaries, comprehend its meaning in context and proceed seamlessly to the next word.”
