Another thread asleep for four years, but here I go. Are you guys sure about this? I find it hard that someone like John, with such command of English language, was dyslexic (but then again I’m not an expert). Same thing about the man who wrote Penny Lane. Can anybody cite sources or post a link? It would be much appreciated.

@Oudis 

I found a site which states that John was dyslexic 

http://dyslexiahelp.umich.edu/.....ohn-lennon

Paul himself says that he was dyslexic

I don't know whether he really was or not, but if he was dyslexic that wouldn't impede his use of the English language, just make it difficult to read it.

Maybe difficulty in seeing words correctly could've even contributed to the word games he liked to play.

He did have bad eyesight for sure, so dyslexic or not reading would be tough without his glasses.

And off-topic for a moment, digging up old topics is fun, isn't it? a-hard-days-night-ringo-10

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.
