A couple of my hyperlexic thoughts on dyslexics

Reading a dyslexic person's online writing (or email) is amazingly different if you have actually met the person. It reads much better then.

Also, I know some dyslexics who, because of the systematic effort put forth to get the words out combined with the mis-wiring, end up mangling language in a way that is... insightful. Example: coining a new words. I have a dyslexic friend who does this (accidentally) a lot. Non-words that, when you look at them, make perfect sense, and really _ought_ to exist, but I can never remember later what the clever non-word was, because it's not really a word and is therefore lost to my memory.
