WHAT'S UNIQUE ABOUT THE PASSAGE ABOVE??


UPDATE : YES-THERE ARE 2 "THE's" IN THE PASSAGE .MOST PEOPLE MISS OUT THE OBVIOUS REDUNDANCY OF THE INFORMATION. This means ,when you are reading , the brain processes short, familiar words as a whole and decodes longer words letter-by-letter.But when you read longer sentences,the brain processes a familiar group of words as a single phrase.The brain stores small words, such as 'of,' as a unit, while longer words require decoding. The brain also stores common groups of words, such as 'in the,' as a whole phrase. Words or phrases the brain sees as whole units are called sight words or sight phrases. If something is missing or odd in one of these sight words or phrases, the brain compensates for the problem based on the context of surrounding letters or words.
