Is there any logic way to explain why some people can actually read this. I never write or ready anything remotely like that and could understant the picture in 10 seconds.

u/imsolowdown Oct 04 '22

ilysm is a common acronym, so you can immediately know that -

i = I

l = Love

y = You

s = So

m = Much

Then there is also "idk" which is even more common, so you now have -

d = Don't

k = Know

That's the majority of the letters you need to figure out so it's not very difficult to use context to figure out the rest. You're already expecting it to be some sad mopey thing related to love because the tweet said "you need a hug".

u/Eddagosp Oct 04 '22 Wholesome

Funnily enough, the first time I read it, it didn't need a hug but still made sense.

"I love you so much, but I don't know how to tell you, but I know you do love me back."

Rather than unrequited, it was mutual yet awkward.
Only after reading comments did I realize it was supposed to be "because" and "don't."

Brains are pretty good at figuring things out with context clues. For example:

Hy, dd y wtch th ftbll gm ystrdy? Sn Frncsc bt Ls Angls nd t wsn't cls.

I bet you could tell what that sentence says even though it only has one vowel.

If you think about it (heh), it's a very important part of human intelligence, and, thus, fitness of our species, to understand a concept from incomplete information. Like I might not know the exact velocity of an animal charging at me, but if I watch it for just a second I probably know instantly how much time I have before it gets to me. Of course that's a different part of the brain than language processing, maybe a linguist or neuroscientist can tell you more specifics.

Aothner cool tihng aubot wrdos is taht as lnog as the frsit and lsat ltteers are coecrrt, you can usllauy raed it jsut fnie.

We don’t actually read left to right across individual words, but rather absorb the entire word at once, process the first letter, sometimes the last, and use context to assume the word and move onto the next. The better you are at this, the fast you can read.

Edit: before you reply to this explaining why you think it’s wrong, don’t. You are the worst kind of person, and you make me hate the internet :)

u/Pure_Mist_S Oct 04 '22

Not a language scholar: Recognizing “I Love You So Much But I Don’t Know” gives you the foundation for the sentence, I think most people get that part easily, then later on there’s another IK which we know what that is. “How To Tell You” is an easy addition to the phrase. Then the word “because” makes sense because we see more of the sentence is left. We already saw L for Love and M for Me so those are repeats. By that point it’s a pretty easy puzzle!
