Could typing change the way you use words?


After a BBC article displayed the frustrations of the AZERTY keyboard in France, we were left to think about the ways some words could be influenced by the positioning of letters. For instance, look at the list of words typed using only the left hand. Are lefties more likely to "abracadabra sex"? If so, would they find vowel-heavy words to supliment their texts with the Dvorak Simplified Keyboard?

Or would it be the same mishaps of contemporary autocorrects if you were to sit down with these keyboards and type out a blog entry no knowing they keys were different? What would your name be if spelled out on these keyboards if you didn't know they letters were arrayed differently?
