It is only in this small area of the fovea where the cone cells are packed together that the reader can identify words with the least effort. It is the quality of resolution of the letters that are the first consideration for word identification. The rod cells of the retina also contribute to word recognition. These cells are situated outside of the fovea and serve a double function. They are sensitive to word shape and word length. Words that are printed in lowercase letters have characteristic shapes, or skylines, and skilled readers automatically use shape as one of the cues for word recognition.
