Tops or Bottoms

Can you figure out the word on the left by looking only at the bottom half of the letters? Experts say that we read mostly by looking at the tops of letters as we scan a sentance.

Now try to read the same word by looking only at the tops of the letters. Pass your mouse over the word, to reveal the tops of the letters. But do not click your mouse yet. Is it easier to read now? If you have trouble click your mouse over the image to reveal the whole word.
