Of course, that was back in 1991-1996, so perhaps new studies have shed more light on the subject...or perhaps the study that we read only pertained to a certain group, like 70-75% of speakers of English, or 70-75% of adults or something like that. Maybe more populations had yet to be studied or something. I can't remember the exact study that we covered.
I'm curious about the demographics of the study - what the education level, or just the reading level was of the participants. Maybe I'll try this on some of the youngest lads in my Boy Scout Troop when we meet again.
A few weeks ago at my son's school (I was substituting), I came across a phonetic dictionary. I can't for the life of me remember what the actual name of the book was, but it was quite interesting to browse. It was arranged phonetically, omitting vowels. It kept me occupied for a few minutes trying to think of words and then looking them up. Challenging at first, but then easy to use.
BTW, I could read the OP just fine, although like #9, I stumbled on "sgtrane". I can't make heads or tails out of #21.
21>, that's fake, I presume? Or at least not English?
But I wish we had a way of removing threads from the "topics you've posted to" list. There are some threads that I'd simply like to forget.
