I think this doesn't do the same work to Chines .
parallax maybe is the major reason for the fact of this.
If you print each word into bigger font , then, you may be lost in the section above.
I think it was a mistake taken by our eyes for distance. another reason may be according to our reading habbit . we get used to get the first and the end letter for glance. so the word was screened by our blurried memory.
The same to Chinese, if it was written tiny enough , you can get the same results.
