When reading backwards speech (like Zatanna’s spells), how do you read them in your head?

  • I try to read it as it’s written (“Ee-kat 'em ott eh-t eeno…”)
  • I try to keep the sounds but reverse them (“Kate eem oot eethe nuw…”)
  • I just start at the end of each word and read normally (“Take me to the one…”)
  • Other (Esaelp nethgilne su.)

Ah, this is always annoying. I keep expecting the entire word bubble to be flipped, but instead I have to read the words backwards individually.

I hear in my head basically an audio clip of the words being played backwards (which I believe they do for Zatanna in several of the animated series and movies)

Yes, the word order is a pet peeve of mine, as well.

I read the backwords badly. The forwards to know what it says. Then backwords again for by he story.

Read as written, then normal to understand, and soon if I see something like “evom” so many times, I won’t need to think before I know she means “move”.

Me too

I read it as written at first, and then decipher it.

Same. I like to know the sound of it in my head before deciphering the meaning.
