"It is true, and thus the question of whether it is sad or happy has no meaning whatever."

"Reading is fundamental," so said the ad campaign. A Microsoft psychologist wrote a nice synthesis paper on theories of word recognition, here. It's a fascinating topic, though I'm not sure I like his conclusions (or, my coffee just hasn't kicked in sufficiently), and it does bother me that, with a PhD in psychology, he was unfamiliar with the word shape literature. We covered it in Psych 100. It's an interesting read, regardless.
