The remarkable inefficiency of word recognition

Looks at the whether objects are recognized by parts or as wholes and looks specifically at word recognition, finding that a word is unreadable unless its letters are separately identifiable and that we never in fact learn to see a word as a whole feature. Our identification of a word is mediated by independent detection of components that are a letter or less.
